Filmed live at the National Theatre, in cinemas from 17 March.

Filmed live in front of an audience, Hex is a vividly original retelling of Sleeping Beauty. A mythic, big-hearted new musical that goes beyond the waking kiss. Deep in the wood, a lonely fairy longs for someone to bless. When she is summoned to the palace to help the princess sleep, her dream turns into a nightmare and her blessing becomes a curse. Soon, she is plunged into a frantic, hundred-year quest to somehow make everything right.

Rufus Norris directs Rosalie Craig (The Ferryman, Company) in this new musical filmed live on stage at the National Theatre, with music by Jim Fortune, book by Tanya Ronder.
