- The dancers were great actors, with a gripping good vs evil vampire storyline and a feisty Aurora who didn’t fall in love with a prince (yipee)
- The set and costumers were grand, gothic and magical.
- The world class dancing provided a tantalising mix of styles, pace and energy.
To be honest, the whole performance was incredible as is all of Matthew Bourne’s work. But, no matter how interesting I may have found it, my Disney hard-wired brain has ultimately decided you can’t beat the classic.
