English National Ballet’s award-winning production of Cinderella tells everyone’s favourite rags-to-riches story in a beautiful three-act ballet by Michael Corder.
Cinderella is tormented by her spiteful stepsisters who are to attend the glamorous Prince’s ball. Upset and alone Cinderella’s Fairy Godmother intervenes and transforms her into a glittering princess who shall go to the ball.
Despite her Fairy Godmother’s warning Cinderella stays at the ball in the Prince’s arms until midnight where she begins to transform back into rags and loses one of her enchanted slippers. The Prince must refuse the advances of Cinderella’s cruel stepsisters before he can take Cinderella as his princess forever.
Prokofiev’s soaring music and David Walker’s sumptuous costumes and sets combine with magical choreography to conjure up a beautiful fairy tale world.
