This year has seen the twenty-fifth anniversary of choreographer Matthew Bourne's company New Adventures and this new 'Sleeping Beauty' is the culmination of that celebration. As is his wont, Bourne reimagines the dusty old fairytale with tongue-in-cheek humour, contemporary references and accessible, theatrical dance. Subtitled 'A Gothic Romance', this tale of Princess Aurora begins in 1890 (the year the ballet was first performed) and, after a century of sleep, has her waking up in the present day.
