Sleeping Beauty on skates

We are certainly not spoiled with cultural happenings here in Brunei, it's been ages since there was a big show put on - so when they advertised that "Sleeping Beauty on skates" was coming, we got tickets straight away!
The show was held in the Indoor Stadium, and the cast of the show came all the way from Australia. We talked to a few after the show, and it turned out the troupe was made up of national and international skates champions!

The classical story of Sleeping Beauty was changed a bit in this version, we didn't get to see the Prince kiss the Princess, which disappointed the girls a little bit..! :)
Still, it was a good show with some great skating routines. Considering they normally do this on ice, and I suppose techniques are ever so slightly different, they did a very good job. I also did love the costumes, they did a lot of changes, and all looked absolutely stunning.



They had a jester who did a few circus acts, such as juggling, juggling with fire and riding a unicycle.

Sleeping Beauty..:




It got a bit choppy since we had to have an extra intermission due to prayer time, but I think the kids enjoyed it. Linnea and her friends hang by the entrance and talked to the cast, and when it was time for photos - they were already best friends! Linnea and her friends having their photo taken with the Queen, and Sleeping Beauty as a baby:

And - with Sleeping Beauty (her real name was Sarah, the girls informed me!) and the Prince:


 The dudes were there too!
