Sleeping Beauty – Fairy Tale, Dance and Dreams

17th October 2017 – 15th April 2018

“Once upon a time, in a faraway land…”

Sleeping Beauty is one of the world’s most loved fairy tales, and one of the greatest classical ballets. The medieval story about the sleeping princess has been reworked throughout history. Now it awakens once more at Dansmuseet.

Sleeping Beauty – Fairy Tale, Dance and Dreams is an exhibition for the whole family in which the well-known tale is told through large illustrated book pages and imaginative environments. At the same time, spectacular costumes are being shown from three different productions of the ballet Sleeping Beauty. The focal point of the exhibition is the Ballets Russes performance of Sleeping Beauty in London in 1921, and Yngve Gamlin’s creations for the Royal Swedish Opera in 1955 are also on display.

The illustrations in the exhibition are created by the August literary prize nominee Lena Sjöberg.

This exhibition is suitable for both children and adults.
