Category: Music & Theatre Dates: Monday, 05 August 2013 to Friday, 09 August 2013 Ballet enthusiasts rejoice as, for a limited time only, Moscow's prestigious Bolshoi Ballet company will be performing Tchaikovsky's beloved The Sleeping Beauty - the first time such a performance has ever been witnessed in the UK. Presented as part of the Royal Opera House's Golden Jubilee season, the production will run from August 5th for one week only. Based on Perrault’s beloved fairy tale that has enthralled generations, audiences can expect lavish sets, exquisite costumes and perfect pointwork to complement this magical story. With the performance lasting just over two-and-half hours, inclusive of a 25-minute interval, The Sleeping Beauty promises to be a resplendent occasion and palatable for both veteran balletomanes and newcomers to the art. If you're booking to see the ballet, deal with your accommodation in London at the same time by taking advantage of the Book Early and Save promotion at The 41 Hotel, located on Buckingham Palace Road and a stone's throw away from the Royal Opera House.
