VIENNA Festival Ballet is making a welcome return to Retford Majestic Theatre in April.

They are bringing their traditional and enchanting production of The Sleeping Beauty on Sunday 21st April

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

The wicked fairy Carabosse lays a curse on Princess Aurora, proclaiming that 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.

The ballet begins at 5pm.

Tickets are £19, £16 and children over two are £12.50.
