How Is Matthew Bourne Changing Sleeping Beauty?
For starters: the baby Princess Aurora is a puppet (three different ones, in fact, including one they call "the Exorcist puppet"); the three fairies are named Tantrum, Ardour and Feral; the Lilac Fairy is male (what's a Matthew Bourne ballet without gender changes?); and Beauty goes to sleep in the Edwardian era and wakes up after 100 years - in the present day.
