Bringing digital cinema and theatre to the heart of the Peak District


National Theatre



Thu. 17 Mar, 2022


19:00 - 22:00




This performance will be filmed live at the Olivier Theatre during the show’s run in December and January.

A vividly original retelling of Sleeping Beauty, a mythic, big-hearted new musical that goes beyond the waking kiss.

Deep in the wood, a lonely fairy longs for someone to bless. When she is summoned to the palace to help the princess sleep, her dream turns into a nightmare and her blessing becomes a curse. Soon, she is plunged into a frantic, hundred-year quest to somehow make everything right.

Rufus Norris directs the world premiere of this contemporary twist on Sleeping Beauty, featuring brand new music by Jim Fortune and lyrics by Rufus Norris.

There is more information about the production at the National Theatre website and you can watch a video of composer Jim Fortune introducing the show here
