A wicked curse, a fairy’s blessing and the triumph of love: The Sleeping Beauty is one of the best-loved of all stories. In this sparkling new album from The Australian Ballet and ABC Classics, favourite moments from Tchaikovsky’s sumptuous score are woven together by narration from peerless Australian actor David Wenham (The Lord of the Rings, Van Helsing). The perfect gift for lovers – both young and old – of ballet, beautiful music and classic tales.
