Lyric Suite/Cinderella, After the Ball - T0524012395

Lyric Suite - [Michael Corder], one of Britain's most prolific and outstanding choreographers, was born in London, studied at the Royal Ballet School and became a member of the Royal Ballet at Covent Garden in 1973. Creator of over 50 original works, his ballets have been performed by the Royal Ballet, Sadler's Wells Royal Ballet, English National Ballet, Royal Danish Ballet, Dutch National Ballet, Boston Ballet and The Norwegian National Ballet amongst many others. Lyric Suite is a classical piece set to music by Grieg. The score is made up from three movements from the Holberg Suite op.40 (preludium, sarabande and rigaudon), the 2nd movement of Two Nordic Melodies op.63 and one movement from the Lyric Suite op.54 (notturno). And finally the norwegian march also from the Lyric Suite. This is a beautiful pure classical work that will delight dancers and audiences alike. Cinderella - The tale starts after the Ball and the most famous incident of a lost shoe in fictional history. We continue our story on past the wedding scene to the perhaps not quite so 'happily ever after' Cinderella and Prince Charming. The ultimate hero and heroine duo struggle to overcome their differing backgrounds and Cinderella's humble beginnings as she settles in to being the Princess┬╣. We have some hilarious scenes to open the ballet as Buttons and the 'Ugly Sisters' prepare for the homecoming of the couple. What Cinderella doesn't realise is that the Prince has bankrupted his kingdom and he may well have to auction off Cinderella's gowns, a wedding present from her Fairy Godmother. Needless to say all's well that ends well and their financial problems are resolved due to Cinderella's thrifty ways and the pair truly are on the road to happily ever after.Choreographer Michael Corder (Lyric Suite). Choreographer Morgann Runacre-Temple (Cinderella).
