NAC Presentation

Embrace the exquisite enchantment of The Sleeping Beauty, performed by the internationally-acclaimed Hong Kong Ballet in its NAC debut. One of the finest ballets in the classical repertoire, The Sleeping Beauty is the grandest of Marius Petipa’s masterpieces – and the world’s favourite fairy-tale. This sumptuous production, staged by former Principal Dancer Cynthia Harvey (American Ballet Theatre, The Royal Ballet), features technical brilliance and bravura dancing by outstanding performers, stunning sets and lush costumes by Mark Bailey, and Tchaikovsky’s magnificently seductive classic score. This fast-paced ballet delivers all the essential fairy-tale ingredients: storybook characters, romance, fate, good versus evil, and of course, true love! This is a rare opportunity to see this virtuosic company at the height of its talent.

DOUBLE THE DANCING: You can also see the exquisite and versatile Hong Kong Ballet dancers perform a mixed contemporary ballet program.
