A timeless classic story is presented in a brand new production full of fairy-tale magic and superb dancing. Marianela Nuñez and Vadim Muntagirov star as Cinderella and The Prince in Frederick Ashton’s reworking of Charles Perrault’s famous rags-to-riches story, showcasing the choreographer’s deft musicality and the beauty of Prokofiev’s transcendent score. A creative team steeped in the magic of theatre, film, dance and opera brings new atmosphere to Cinderella’s ethereal world of fairy godmothers and pumpkin carriages, handsome princes and finding true love.

“... magical, lovely and oh so English ...” (Evening Standard ★★★★)

“Marianela Nuñez makes Cinders warm as sunshine. She makes the most arduous spins look like pure pleasure, and in a heartstoppingly lovely duet, she and Vadim Muntagirov’s immaculate prince swoop through each other’s arms as though time didn’t exist.” (The Evening Standard ★★★★)

“... the perfection of Nuñez and Muntagirov’s pas de deux, their regal ease, the incredible lightness of Nuñez’s feet – you could believe she was under a spell. The dancing is transporting, this ballet embodying the fairytale escapism we all sometimes need, telling us everything will turn out fine in the end” (The Guardian)

"Marianela Nunez made an impeccable Cinderella ... a final bravo for Koen Kessels, who conducts the orchestra in a splendid account of the score." (The Spectator)
