Scottish Ballet: Cinderella
Discover the enchanted, sparkling world of Christopher Hampson’s Cinderella, when Scottish Ballet bring the show to the Festival Theatre.
About Scottish Ballet: Cinderella
Sorry, but this event has been and gone!
The ultimate spectacle. Primary colours that burst out of the darkness. Billowing ball gowns whisking you into a magical world. And Prokofiev’s irresistibly melodic score showing well-loved characters in a whole new light – performed live by the Scottish Ballet Orchestra.
Christopher Hampson’s Cinderella is everything you adore about the classic fairy tale – made fresh, funny and touching.
We meet Cinderella at the saddest of times, then see her taken for granted by her wicked stepmother and two nasty stepsisters. But there’s no time for despair: Cinderella’s fairy godmother is casting spells of dressmaker spiders, magical roses and a very special glass slipper. Will love conquer loneliness, and light chase away the dark? Be part of the spectacle, and rediscover this classic tale.
Devised by our artistic director for Royal New Zealand Ballet in 2007, Scottish Ballet staged the European premier of Cinderella to widespread acclaim in 2015.
Evenings 7.30pm (not Sundays)
Matinees 2.30pm (not Wed 12, Thu 13, Wed 19, Fri 21 or Thu 27).
No performances Mondays, Tuesdays or Wed 26 Dec.
While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Scottish Ballet: Cinderella are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
