High Arts Corner: Sleeping Beauty Ballet

Title: Sleeping Beauty
Performed by: Birmingham Royal Ballet
Where: Birmingham Hippodrome
When: 8 October 2013

I know you
I walked with you once upon a dream…
But if I know you, I know what you’ll do
You’ll love me at once
the way you did once upon a dream

Once Upon A Dream” from Sleeping Beauty (1959)

Final Verdict: Unless you are a huge fan of any ballet, give this one a pass, especially with kids or a date that is uninterested.

About Lynne

I am currently a PhD student of Forensic Psychology, which may explain the off mix of extremely morbid books sitting next to children’s books. Hailing from the Midwest in the United States of America, I have now lived in England for over 2 years (which will explain any strange grammar usage). From a very young age, my parents cultivated a love of reading, and never restricted what I read. When I reached middle school I began reading Shakespeare (a lifelong love affair), but had also discovered the wonders of young adult fiction. While the world may now expect me to read books more reflective of my age, I have fought this and am a strong supporter of the YA novel! Despite having very little free time, I still sets aside time for a reading every evening, and listens to books on my way to University. I dream of one day being a published novelist and published scientist!
