Christopher Wheeldon's Cinderella
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. In the Elgar Room.
