Cinderella - Christopher Wheeldon's Cinderella
Tour synopsis, cast & creatives
Christopher Wheeldon 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.Performers Alina Cojocaru, Isaac Hernandez, Erina Takahashi, Joseph Caley, Emma Hawes, Francesco Gabriele Frola, Maria Kochetkova, Jeffrey Cirio, Ken Saruhashi, Barry Drummond.
