A supernatural love story which crosses the generations and brought to the stage by a widely renowned choreographer is on its way to the Norwich Theatre Royal early next month.

Matthew Bourne’s Sleeping Beauty is set in the kingdom of King Benedict and Queen Eleanor where the beautiful Princess Aurora spends her early years in a Gothic setting among fairies and vampires.

As she grows up and matures, she finds herself in the more uptight Edwardian era while also finding a romantic interest in the Royal gamekeeper Leo.

But evil forces are set to interfere in her life and the production ends up in modern times where Princess Aurora experiences things much stranger than a fairy world.

The critically-acclaimed production has delighted audiences around the country, and it takes to the Norwich stage from Tuesday, March 8 until Saturday, March 12.

The performances are 7.30pm on all of these days, plus 2.30pm matinees on the Thursday and Saturday. The tickets are £8-£39 - please see
