The sparkling production by Christopher Wheeldon, for the first time in Manchester and Southampton.

The classic fairy tale becomes a truly magical ballet brought to life with over 40 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.

Funny, breathtakingly magical and tender.
