Cinderella, the acclaimed ballet showing at the Royal Albert Hall will be coming to an end on Sunday June 16th
Co-produced by English National Ballet and the Royal Albert Hall, Christopher Wheeldon’s inventive production features over 90 dancers and combines magnificent sets and costumes, theatrical surprises, and lively choreography set to Prokofiev’s famous score performed by English National Ballet Philharmonic
Working from the darkly intriguing Brothers Grimm version of the story, Wheeldon originally created Cinderella to great acclaim for Dutch National Ballet and San Francisco Ballet: he and his creative team now reunite for the re-staging of this sparkling ballet. The production includes striking set design by Julian Crouch – founder of the influential theatre company, Improbable – puppetry from Basil Twist (whose credits include Charlie and the Chocolate Factory) and projection from Daniel Brodie.
English National Ballet has presented grand-scale in-the-round productions at the Royal Albert Hall since 1997, including Swan Lake – with its record-breaking 60 swans – and re-workings of Romeo & Juliet and Sleeping Beauty.
