Ballet Theatre UK take Sleeping Beauty to Cookstown

Elegant handcrafted costumes and dramatic stage sets combine with the beautiful music of Tchaikovsky, telling a fairy tale which is set in an enchanted world. The piece is to be performed by Ballet Theatre UK and their internationally acclaimed company of dancers at the Burnavon in Cookstown on 26th May.

Curse is set in a fairy tale land, where a curse has been placed in Princess Aurora by the wicked Fairy Carabosse: to prick her finger on her eighteenth birthday and die. However the lovely Lilac Fairy has cast a counter-spell so that Aurora did not die, but fell asleep for one hundred years. The only thing that could undo the evil spell is true love’s kiss.

The innovative company has received rave reviews for its entertaining and engaging performances. The talented dancers from the company have received much high praise from critics and audiences alike for their exhilarating dances. Whether or not you have seen the company perform before, you will be captivated by this dramatic interpretation of a popular ballet.
