Neglected and abused by her cruel stepmother and
stepsisters, Cinderella’s life is one of drudgery and
hardship. Then, on the evening of an extravagant
ball at the palace, amidst swirling,magical mists, her
Fairy Godmother appears and casts a spell that will
change her life forever.
Arriving at the ball in a
beautiful dress, Cinderella draws everyone’s eyes to
her, including those of the handsome Prince. He
sweeps her off her feet and they dance the night
away, until the clock chimes midnight and the party
comes to an abrupt end.
Thrust back into her
miserable existence, Cinderella can only dream of
what might have been, until an unexpected royal
visitor comes to her home, searching the land for
the mysterious owner of a jewelled slipper...
Created for the City of Birmingham to celebrate the
Company’s 20th anniversary in 2010 and televised
by the BBC, Cinderella is stunning, and one of
David Bintley’s most successful creations to date.
With breathtaking designs by John Macfarlane,
designer of the Company’s famous production of
The Nutcracker, and music by Sergei Prokofiev, who
wrote the beautiful score to Romeo and Juliet, this is
one family Christmas treat you definitely shouldn’t
