Matthew Bourne’s Sleeping Beauty

The Fairies Dance for Aurora

The year is 1890. By the light of the full moon and candlesticks, six good fairies slip into the sleeping baby Aurora’s room. The baby awakes unfrightened and the fairies dance for her. Matthew Bourne’s Sleeping Beauty, the award-winning ballet production, airs on Great Performances, Friday, April 25 at 9 p.m. on PBS.
