Sleeping Beauty Des Moines | Civic Center

Sleeping Beauty Des Moines | Civic Center

The timeless tale of Sleeping Beauty is reawakened in a stunning new show by the New Adventures theatre company. Sleeping Beauty comes to Des Moines for two days only in September direct from a highly successful run on the West End stage.

Ballet meets Broadway in this critically acclaimed production by the group founded by Matthew Bourne, the only Brit to win Tony Awards for Best Choreography and Best Director plus dozens of other international awards. Escape to the music of Tchaikovsky and take a journey through time at the height of the Fin-de Seicle period full of gothic oppulence and imagery, through the rigid Edwardian era, and into a mythical age of endless Summer when the Princess Aurora rises from her sleep a hundred years later in the modern world.

Goodness and true love’s kiss will triumph over evil in Matthew Bourne’s Sleeping Beauty. Watch this beautiful gothic rendition of the classic fairy tale at the Des Moines Performing Arts Civic Center on September 27 and 28, 2013 only.

Tchaikovsky’s libretto fills the theatre at 7:30pm on both evenings, and at 2:00pm on Saturday for an afternoon performance.
