Northern Ballet's Cinderella | Theatre Royal
Tue 21 Oct - Sat 25 Oct
Set in imperial Russia at a time when superstitious people believe in the possibility of magic, Northern Ballet’s new adaptation of this classic fairytale sees heartbreak turn to joy as the unstoppable power of young love conquers all.
A beautiful summer’s day turns into tragedy. Devastated by the loss of her father, and excluded by her cruel stepmother and sisters, Cinderella finds solace on the frozen lake where she sees her Prince Charming.
As romance blossoms, a magical encounter in a marketplace changes Cinderella’s destiny. Journey through elegant Russia, with breathtaking winter scenes and opulent ballrooms created by Duncan Hayler (Beauty & the Beast, A Midsummer Night’s Dream). With a new score from Philip Feeney played live by Northern Ballet Sinfonia, you will not want to miss this unforgettable ballet.
Please note: Contains flashing lights.
