There’s something glamorous about a night at the ballet – donning your finest; scurrying to your velvet seat as the final call sounds; the flush that comes when the lights dim and the orchestra rises. It’s a beautiful mix of Old World entertainment and contemporary art.

After sell-out seasons in Melbourne, Sydney and Brisbane, The Australian Ballet is bringing its interpretation of The Sleeping Beauty to Adelaide for eight shows. The company rarely makes its way to South Australia, so to help celebrate the occasion Broadsheet is offering one reader a lavish VIP package for two to the opening night.

The winner will kick things off at Adelaide’s MECCA Cosmetica with the offer of two make-up appointments. What about sparkles to match The Sleeping Beauty theme, or a smoky eye if Carabosse, the evil fairy godmother, is more your style.

From there you’ll head to Adelaide Festival Centre where two tickets to the opening performance of The Sleeping Beauty will be waiting. The Australian Ballet Company with the Adelaide Symphony Orchestra will take you into a world of enchantment, romance and imperial grandeur. You’ll encounter fairies, princes and woodland nymphs on Princess Aurora’s journey to true love’s kiss.

Cap off the night with a room for two in the luxurious surrounds of King William Street’s Mayfair Hotel in the heritage-listed CML building, where you rest your head in anticipation of a buffet breakfast.

Enter for your chance to win.
