The world's favourite fairy-tale is brought to life by The Australian Ballet in acclaimed choreographer Alexei Ratmansky's energetic production, bubbling with humour and set to Prokovfiev's divinely romantic score.
Whilst her outrageous stepmother and her excitable daughters prepare for the Royal Ball, Cinderella dreams of dancing with the Prince. Later that evening, magically her rags become a glittering gown and, escorted by heavenly stars and planets, she arrives at the Ball. From that very moment the Prince is smitten, midnight strikes and one lost slipper later, he must now embark on a world-wide journey to find his lost love&.
Making its European premiere, this thoroughly magical modern classic will delight the whole family.
