Cinderella in-the-round

Royal Albert Hall, London
06 - 16 Jun

Christopher Wheeldon restages his sparkling production in-the-round.

The classic Brothers Grimm fairy tale 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.

Award-winning choreographer Christopher Wheeldon originally created Cinderella to great acclaim for Dutch National Ballet and San Francisco Ballet: he and his collaborators now adapt it for English National Ballet and the grand space of the Royal Albert Hall.

Funny, breathtakingly magical and tender.
