Christopher Marney – aka Count Lilac

BBC2 5.55pm – Christmas Day

If you haven’t been lucky enough to see the performance live (or even if you have!), don’t miss the opportunity to watch our patron Christopher Marney dancing in the world acclaimed Sleeping Beauty adaptation by Matthew Bourne.

Bourne’s interpretation of this fairy tale was Sadler’s Wells’ all-time most successful Christmas show. The story starts in 1890 – the year of the original ballet – and adds vampires and nightclubs along the way. Hannah Vassallo dances Aurora, with Christopher Marney as Count Lilac. Both were nominated for National Dance Awards for these performances.

Happy Christmas everyone.
