One of the most famous ballets of all time will be danced at Grimsby Auditorium this month.

Vienna Festival Ballet present Tchaikovsky’s The Sleeping Beauty as part of their UK tour on Saturday, April 20.

With lavish hand-made costumes and head dresses, productions by Vienna Festival Ballet have all the sparkle and glamour associated with the best of ballet.

The Sleeping Beauty shows off the technique and precision of the dancers in their version of the great classic.

A classic fairy tale set to Tchaikovsky’s magnificent score, stunning choreography and beautiful costumes combined to portray the struggle between good and evil.

The wicked fairy Carabosse lays a curse on Princess Aurora, proclaiming she will one day pierce her finger - and die.

But the Lilac Fairy intervenes, and on the fateful day the princess and the entire palace instead fall into a deep sleep.

A century later, when Prince Florimund awakens the princess with a kiss, the palace awakes and a parade of fairytale characters attends the royal wedding.

Tickets £14.50 to £22.50 available from the box office on 0844 871 3016 or www.atgtickets.com/grimsby
