Sir David Bintley’s enchanting fairy tale is a glorious celebration of ballet, with breathtaking scenery and costumes by the designer of Birmingham Royal Ballet’s famous Nutcracker. Cinderella’s life with her cruel stepmother and stepsisters is one of drudgery and hardship until the evening of an extravagant party at the palace. With the help of her Fairy Godmother, she’s the centre of attention when she arrives at the ball in a magical coach, wearing a gorgeous gown. Cinderella captures every imagination with it's sure-fire mix of wonderful dance, spectacular scenery, and a cast of characters that includes mice, lizards and even a dancing frog.
