Casting a Curse in Sleeping Beauty

The dark fairy Carabosse (Adam Maskell) enters the room of baby Princess Aurora to cast a curse upon her. The king and queen had desperately wanted a child and had sought Carabosse's help, but didn't show gratitude later. The dark fairy takes her revenge, leaving a blackened rose on Aurora's bassinet as an ominous symbol. An excerpt from Matthew Bourne's Sleeping Beauty, airing April 25 at 9 pm.
