With the magical assistance of her fairy godmother, Cinderella gets to go to the ball, meet the prince of her dreams and fall in love, but will it be happily ever after?
This rarely performed masterpiece has it all, offering up magic, comedy and romance in a brand new spellbinding English translation by director Christopher Moon-Little. The well-loved fairytale undergoes a transformation which hurls Cinderella and her Prince into the present day to tell their story in a fresh and modern way which will appeal to all audiences of all ages. Massenet’s stunningly lyrical score also injects moments of humour, tragedy and sincere emotion, none of which are lost in the newly commissioned scoring which will be premiered in this production under the baton of musical director Lewis Gaston.
