Fairy tale meets vampire in the New Adventures dance company’s gothic rendition of Peter Ilyich Tchaikovsky’s “Sleeping Beauty,” which opens at the Palace Theater this evening.

The ballet is directed and choreographed by Matthew Bourne, who re-configures the classic good versus evil love story into a fantastical tale of transformation and resilience.

In this particular version, the Prince is actually a mere commoner named Leo, one whom Aurora knew before she was cursed into slumber, and one who dramatically transforms into a vampire to wait for her to awake.

The critically acclaimed ballet premiered in London in 2012, and plays at Palace Theater in PlayhouseSquare October 1 - 13.

Show times are 7:30 p.m. Tuesday - Friday, 1:30 and 7:30 p.m. on Saturdays, and 1 p.m. and 6:30 p.m. on Sundays.

Tickets are available at PlayhouseSquare.org or by calling (216) 241- 6000.
