A sparkling production staged in-the-round.

The classic fairy tale becomes a truly spectacular ballet at the Royal Albert Hall with over 90 dancers, a live orchestra and magnificent sets and projections.

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.

Christopher Wheeldon’s glittering choreography sees the arena floor flooded with exquisite dancers, while Prokofiev’s sublime score is performed by the English National Balllet Philharmonic.
