Matthew Bourne’s Sleeping Beauty Coming Soon
The North American premiere of Matthew Bourne’s Sleeping Beauty launched in Des Moines, Iowa, last month. If you watch the video below, you’ll hear from Bourne and some of the Sleeping Beauty cast about why this is a production you shouldn’t miss! It comes to Belk Theater at Blumenthal Performing Arts Center Nov. 5-10, which will be here before we know it.
Bourne, one of the world’s most successful dance choreographers, and his company New Adventures, bring their spectacular and lavish new production to Charlotte, direct from a record-breaking season in London’s West End. Bourne is the only British artist to have won a Tony Award for both Best Choreographer and Best Director, and he has won more than 50 international awards for his choreographic work, including the Broadway production of Mary Poppins.
The New York Times said of Sleeping Beauty, “This is Bourne at his best” bringing in “huge audiences more associated with Broadway than ballet.”
