First choreographed to Russian composer Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky's musical score by Marius Petipa in 1890, the Royal Ballet's staging of The Sleeping Beauty was revived for the company's 75th anniversary celebrations in 2006.

Tickets for the live broadcast are available at €18 for adults and €10 for children and under 16, and include a complimentary glass of wine and complimentary parking at the Eden Leisure Car park.

Ballerinas from Brigitte Gauci Borda School of Dance will perform a number from The Sleeping Beauty in the cinema foyer dressed in The Sleeping Beauty ensemble prior to the screening.

An encore will also be shown on Sunday 5 March at 3:00pm. Tickets for this screening are priced at €15 for adults and €10 for children, including free parking.

A competition to win ballerina-related prizes will be running on both days prior to the screening.
