Ballet great David McAllister brings his reimagining of The Sleeping Beauty to his home town of Perth this October. This ambitious new project is McAllister’s first full-length ballet in his 14 years as an Artistic Director, and a crowning moment in his career.

Featuring set and costume designs by award winning designer Gabriela Tylesova and an enchanting Tchaikovsky score performed by the West Australian Symphony Orchestra, The Sleeping Beauty delights the eye with a visual contemporary edge whilst also maintaining its cherished classical roots. Fellow West Australian Kevin Jackson is the Principal Artist playing the lead role of the Prince, and says Perth audiences will be impressed with the sparkling new production.

The Sleeping Beauty will be hosting five performances at Crown Theatre Perth, Wednesday-Sunday, October 7-10, tickets are on sale now at
