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.
One beautiful summer’s day turns into tragedy. Inconsolable from the loss of her father, and isolated by her cruel stepmother and sisters, Cinderella finds peace on the frozen lake where she first sees her Prince Charming.
As their romance blossoms, an enchanting encounter in a market place changes Cinderella’s destiny.
Journey through imperial Russia, with magical winter scenes and opulent ballrooms created by Duncan Hayler (Beauty & the Beast, A Midsummer Night’s Dream). With a new score from Phillip Feeney played live by Northern Ballet Sinfonia, this unforgettable ballet is not to be missed.
Please note that this production contains short periods of flashing and strobe lighting effects.
