16 Feb - 25 Mar 2017
A new production of Rossini's sparkling comedy performed by an exciting international cast.
A much-loved fairy tale, but not quite as you know it. Cinderella scrubs the floor of a dance school and dreams of a better life. A prince arrives seeking a companion and so this sparkling romcom is set in motion.
Cinderella’s stepfather Don Magnifico and the Prince’s servant Dandini are marvellous comic creations. Cinderella herself emerges as a true romantic heroine whose transformation is achieved through the power of music.
An evening of pure magic is in store, uniting the fun, fire and brilliance of Rossini’s music with a fresh and witty production.
Please note, Cinderella contains strobe lighting effects at approx 1 hour 20 minutes (towards the end of Part 1). This will occur three times and lasts for no longer than 5 seconds each occurrence. In Part 2 there is a lightning effect that lasts for approximately 30 seconds, this occurs 26 minutes into the second half.
Approximately 2 hours 30 minutes
Sung in Italian with English titles
Suitable for 7+
Available: Audio described
