Between her stepmother and her two vain and selfish stepsisters, poor Cinderella has a hard life. However… a magic wand will change her destiny forever. Recreated for Les Grands Ballets with dazzling new sets and costumes, this sublime ballet on pointe brings a touch of wonder and enchantment.
Created in 2011 by choreographer Jayne Smeulders, then principal dancer with the West Australian Ballet, this piece set to Prokofiev’s score pays homage to the Brothers Grimm’s tale and showcases the talent and elegance of Les Grands Ballets’ performers.
A royal moment to share with the whole family.
Performance is approximately 2 hours including intermission
