Sleeping Beauty – A Spectacular Fairytale

Music by Tchaikovsky

Buxton Opera House

Every child’s favourite fairytale, Sleeping Beauty is the classic story of love and innocence, mystery and magic set to Tchaikovsky’s sublime score.

Rest Weary Soul

When darkness falls and winter presses in;

When peace, beauty, innocence give way to sin;

When troubles mount and evil seems to win;


Rest, weary soul

and on this simple story ponder

Beauty only sleeps

Till wakened by Love’s wonder


Rev. Philip Payne

Gone for refreshment.  Sleeping Beauty may be a fairytale, but even fairytales have hidden truth.
