The classic fairy tale becomes a truly spectacular ballet at the Royal Albert Hall with English National Ballet’s biggest production to date.
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. With over 130 dancers working on the production, a live orchestra, and plenty of surprises, it’s sure to be magical.
