New York City Center has announced that the entire original U.K. cast will make up the full cast of the upcoming New York premiere of choreographer Matthew Bourne’s Sleeping Beauty, which will run from October 23-November 3.

Matthew Bourne’s Sleeping Beauty returns the choreographer to the music of Tchaikovsky, completing a trio of masterworks that Bourne began in 1992 with Nutcracker! and continued in 1995 with Swan Lake. His new scenario is a gothic tale for all ages, a supernatural love story that is set across the decades.

The full cast includes Hannah Vassallo, Ashley Shaw, Dominic North, Chris Trenfield, Christopher Marney, Liam Mower, Tom Jackson Greaves, Adam Maskell, Edwin Ray, Daisy May Kemp, Nicole Kabera, Daniel Collins, Pia Driver, Phil Jack Gardner, Mari Kamata, Dena Lague, Dominic Lamb, Katy Lowenhoff, Kate Lyons, Leon Moran, Luke Murphy, Danny Reubens, and Joe Walkling.

The design team will feature Lez Brotherston (set and costumes), Paule Constable (lighting), and Paul Groothuis (sound design).
