See English National Ballet’s Cinderella at the Royal Albert Hall this summer!
Award-winning choreographer, Christopher Wheeldon, restages his sparkling production of the classic Brothers Grimm fairy tale in-the-round.
Cinderella becomes a truly spectacular ballet as the Royal Albert Hall is brought to life with over 90 dancers, a live orchestra, and plenty of surprises.
This June, enter an enchanting kingdom where forest creatures live alongside princes, a growing tree appears to dance in the wind, and Cinderella’s wit and generosity get her to the ball – with the help of a little bit of magic.
Set to the melodious tunes of Prokofiev’s sublime score, performed by English National Ballet Philharmonic, this incredible ballet combines magnificent sets and costumes with lively choreography that is guaranteed to delight, move and astound.
Christopher Wheeldon (OBE and Artistic Associate of The Royal Ballet) originally created Cinderella to great acclaim for Dutch National Ballet and San Francisco Ballet: be the first to see how he and his collaborators now adapt it for English National Ballet and the grand space of the Royal Albert Hall.
What to expect:Acting
Recommended for:Anyone (0%)
The actors are good but the production is not especially since the tickets are the price of a west end show. We also bought "premium" tickets and they ended up being the worst tickets with the view completely cut off by the front 3 rows so ended up moving to lower priced seats. The show is also very long and has quite long pauses for no reason. At intermission about a quarter of the people never came back.
