Christopher Wheeldon (Tony award-winning choreographer and director for An American in Paris) restages his sparkling production of the classic Brothers Grimm fairy tale in-the-round.
Cinderella becomes a truly spectacular ballet as the Royal Albert Hall is brought to life with over 90 dancers, a live orchestra, and plenty of surprises.
Enter an enchanting kingdom where forest creatures live alongside princes, a growing tree appears to dance in the wind, and Cinderella’s wit and generosity get her to the ball – with the help of a little bit of magic.
This inventive production combines magnificent sets and costumes, surprising theatrical tricks and lively choreography to delight, move and astound – all to the melodious tunes of Prokofiev’s sublime score, performed by English National Ballet Philharmonic.
Christopher Wheeldon (OBE and Artistic Associate of The Royal Ballet) originally created Cinderella to great acclaim for Dutch National Ballet and San Francisco Ballet: he and his collaborators now adapt it for English National Ballet and the grand space of the Royal Albert Hall.
