Another stunning show has been added to the Dubai Opera line-up as the venue is set to welcome Sleeping Beauty next year. Performed by the The National Ballet of Ukraine, there will be two matinee and two evening performances over April 26 and April 27 2019.

Tickets go on sale this Tuesday October 16 at 12pm from Dhs250, with an early bird offer of 20 per cent off the top three categories. There will also be a 50 per cent discount for children aged 12 and under.

For those that aren’t familiar with the iconic story, the narrative follows Princess Aurora, who falls into a deep, enchanted sleep after she pricks her finger on a spindle. Cursed by the wicked fairy, only the kiss from a Prince can wake her.

“Sleeping Beauty is a classic ballet, perfect for the entire family and anyone longing to be mesmerised by a fantastic and beautiful production of this ever-popular fairy tale,” comments Jasper Hope, Dubai Opera CEO.
