Matthew Bourne's Sleeping Beauty At The Bristol Hippodrome

Matthew Bourne's Sleeping Beauty reawakens, celebrating 10 years since its premiere at Sadlers Wells, when it became the fastest selling production in the company’s history. Catch it at The Bristol Hippodrome from 28 February 2023 until 4 March 2023. Shows are daily at 7.30pm with additional matinee performances on Thursday and Saturday afternoons.

Now established as a firm favourite in the New Adventures repertoire, the award-winning Sleeping Beauty has enchanted international audiences throughout the UK and across the globe.

Enter a wondrous world of magical fairies and vampires, where the timeless tale of good vs evil is turned upside-down, creating a supernatural love story that even the passage of time itself cannot hinder. Will Princess Aurora ever find her true love again?

With an unforgettable score by Tchaikovsky, sumptuous sets and costumes, evocative lighting and masterly storytelling, the beloved fairy tale is brought to life by the uniquely talented New Adventures company.

Get ready to be transported in time from the halcyon days of the late Edwardian era through to the modern day in this dazzling gothic romance.

There will be a post-show Q&A after the show on Tue 28 Feb for those wishing to remain after the show, with a BSL interpreter available.
