BAT­MAN: RE­TURN OF THE CAPE CRU­SADERS Coolan­gatta, Har­bour Town

It’s back to the 1960s as Bat­man and Robin spring into ac­tion when Gotham City is threat­ened by a quar­tet of Bat­man’s most fiendish foes – Pen­guin, The Joker, Rid­dler and Cat­woman. The four su­per-vil­lains have com­bined their wicked tal­ents to hatch a plot so ne­far­i­ous that the dy­namic duo will need to go to outer space (and back) to foil their arch en­e­mies and re­store or­der in Gotham City.


In a su­per­nat­u­ral world of good and evil, Princess Aurora be­comes cursed by a sor­cerer on her 16th birth­day, but by some fast think­ing by The Li­lac Fairy she falls into a deep sleep and is saved from death. One day, a lonely Prince searches for his true love and awak­ens the princess with a kiss. Be swept into a world of mag­i­cal fairies and blue­birds with Aurora and her Prince, as they dance their way through rose gar­dens and Im­pe­rial Courts, to Tchaikovsky’s en­chant­ing score to cel­e­brate their love. Satur­day and Sun­day at 10am.

Pic­ture: Jeff Busby

A scene from The Sleep­ing Beauty, one part of the three-part Aus­tralian Bal­let Fairy Tale Series.
