Ballet Cymru: Cinderella

A sparkling and refreshing ballet based on the eternal fairy tale.

Ballet Cymru, nominated Best Independent Company by the Critics Circle UK National Dance Awards, and winners of the Best Large Scale Dance Production at the Wales Theatre Awards 2017, presents a sparkling and refreshing ballet based on the eternal fairy tale.

Ballet Cymru prides itself on being different and Cinderella will be no exception, with a new music score and creative circus elements, combined with the finest classical dance. Ballet Cymru worked with award winning composer Jack White and Circus Company Citrus Arts to conjure a surprising world of wonder and magic.

Featuring choreography by Creative Wales Award winner Darius James and costumes by Welsh designer Steve Denton, Ballet Cymru bring to life this timeless story using the company’s unique blend of classical technique and storytelling.

“These young dancers created a taut, committed atmosphere on stage, and the audience, comprised of every age group from 5 to 95, were gripped from start to finish. Ballet Cymru, I salute you!”
Amanda Jennings, Dance Europe

“Not too short, and not too long, the evening was a complete delight from start to finish”
