Despite being cancelled until December 22 due to illness, Hex at the National Theatre has found a way to go on in a different form.

Highlights from the musical, a vividly original retelling of Sleeping Beauty, have been released as a recording.

In this big-hearted musical that goes beyond the waking kiss, Rosalie Craig plays 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.

The composer Jim Fortune said: “I’m enormously proud to share the songs from the magical world of Hex, written and produced during the most testing times for our theatres.
