Mathew Bourne’s Sleeping Beauty

The ballet the Sleeping Beauty by Mathew Bourne was so unusual I was mesmerised. The house was packed and when it started there was a hush then laughter, as the most amazing baby puppet show took place. The choreography was exceptional and each time the baby puppet appeared it was electric.  The dancing was exhausting to watch so one can imagine how fit the dancers were. The applause at the end was well deserved.
