English Youth Ballet (EYB) presents a sumptuous production of Sleeping Beauty that promises tradition alongside innovation. The ballet’s essence is good gloriously triumphant over evil. Act 1 at Aurora’s Christening, the relatives present gifts to the baby, but it is interrupted by wicked Aunt Carabosse who places a curse upon Aurora. To reverse the curse the good Aunt Lilac places Aurora, her family and Guests in the Palace Gardens in a cryogenic frozen state to sleep for one hundred years. The Cryonite Fairies protect her until she is awakened by her Prince. Upon his kiss the curse is lifted and Carabosse is defeated. With sparkling new costumes and splendid scenery this spellbinding classic promises excellent dancing, EYB brings this brilliant production to Wycombe Swan. Now entering its 26th phenomenal year, EYB has gained in popularity and has established a formidable reputation for classic and dramatic productions of the famous full-length classical ballets. The stunning professional dancers previously danced with the English National Ballet, Vienna Festival Ballet and Ballet Cymru. The award-winning company gives young dancers throughout the UK a wonderful performance opportunity to dance alongside the principals in solo and corps de ballet roles. EYB promises a spectacular evening at the ballet.
