Cinderella

 

 

Everyone's favourite fairytale - with a twist

 

Witty, vibrant, glamorous and romantic, Alexei Ratmansky’s Cinderella will sweep you off your feet. By popular demand, and after sell-out seasons in Melbourne, Sydney and Adelaide, this smash-hit crowd-pleaser returns to bewitch us again in an exclusive encore season.

Ratmansky, the most in-demand choreographer in the world and the master of the modern story ballet, fills every bar of Prokofiev’s cinematic score as he charts Cinderella’s journey from rags to rapture. Jerôme Kaplan’s vivid, sophisticated designs draw inspiration from Dior, Schiaparelli, the elegance of 1940s Hollywood, and Surrealist art.

Like Ratmansky’s Cinderella – transported to the ball by planets and stars – we are whisked by this magical ballet to new heights of wonder.

Hailed as “effervescent and fun as festive champagne” [Daily Telegraph] and “exquisite from start to finish” [Crikey], Cinderella is “a triumphant addition to the repertoire” [Dance Australia]. Get ready to fall in love all over again!

 

“Ratmansky has packed his Cinderella with loveable characters, warm humour and meaty choreography, creating a wonderful modern fairytale”  — The Age


"Cinderella is set to be the envy of the ballet world stage”  — Theatre People
