The narrative of " Bluebeard " revolves around a man of tremendous wealth and horrific reputation who also suffers from a curious and unusual disfigurement: his beard is blue. His reputation is based upon the fact that he has married several times and each of the wives has mysteriously disappeared. Now he is looking to add to his collection, and the object of his admiration is either of the two daughters of a nearby lady of ostentatious means.

Both are used to leisure and luxury and want to marry a man of means capable of allowing for that transition. Unfortunately, both are repulsed by blue beards. Opulence and mirth win out in the end, however, as the younger sister learns to control her gag reflex in light of the promise of great riches.

When her husband does return from his business trip, he inevitably discovers the evidence of her transgression and summarily tries and judges her guilty with a sentence of death.

She asks for one request before the execution is delivered so she can join her overly curious sisters on the wall of shame behind the locked door. The request is for one half-hour to say her prayers, but during the interim she actually calls out for her sister—Anne—to alert their brothers of her need for rescue.

One was a recording of an old Nureyev performance which only included the cat dance and the Bluebird dance at the end and the other was the Matthew Bourne version, which was highly reimagined the fairies were vampires.
