A brand new musical adaptation of Sleeping Beauty is to premiere at the National Theatre this year.
Hex will play at the Olivier this December with exact dates to be confirmed.
The new musical is described as going “beyond the kiss that woke the Sleeping Beauty and tells the fairy’s tale”.
National Theatre Director Rufus Norris directs with book by Tanya Ronder, music by Jim Fortune and lyrics by Rufus Norris.
Based on the 17th-century folk-tale, this darkly thrilling new version also reunites director Rufus Norris with set and costume designer Katrina Lindsay (Small Island,London Road) following their 2002 critically acclaimed adaptation of Sleeping Beauty.
Casting and further details are to be announced.
