About the event

The classic fairy tale you know and love. It’s the one about the princess who pricks her finger on a spindle and falls into a deep sleep. For centuries, the kingdom slumbers. The only one who can save them is a handsome prince and his revitalising kiss.

Composed in the aftermath of World War I and the Spanish flu pandemic, Respighi’s opera was a tale for a world on its knees. It’s the call for resilience and celebration that we all need right now. Victorian Opera presents this opera as it was intended. Magical larger-than-life puppets and charming music draw you into a wondrous dreamscape in this revival of our acclaimed 2017 production.

Embrace the child within and join a resilient community emerging out of dark times with hope. It’s time for reawakening. Sung in Italian with English surtitles.

"★★★★½ Joyous is the only word necessary to summarise this marvellously energetic and often hilarious performance.”
