See the English National Ballet at the Palace

A spectacular production of Cinderella is coming to Manchester in April

Published on April 6th 2010.


See the English National Ballet at the Palace

This production of Cinderella looks like it will impress ballet aficionados and theatre fans alike. It's set to a beautiful score by Prokofiev, features dancers from a world-renowned ballet company, and tells a story that is firmly etched in the collective imagination.

Acclaimed choreographer Michael Corder created it especially for the English National Ballet back in 1996, when it won both the Lawrence Olivier Award for Best Dance Production and the Evening Standard Award for Outstanding Production in Dance. It has been revived as part of the company's 60th birthday celebrations.

Erina Takahasi, senior principal dancer, said: “Cinderella is one of the first ballets I learnt directly from the choreographer, so even though the part of Cinderella is really hard it is very special to me. I feel I can deliver the character exactly as it was meant to be realised.”

Stunning sets, uplifting music, and sumptuous costumes make it a magical experience. If you want to see classical ballet at its finest, and enjoy a well-known story that (unlike many ballets) is easy to follow, this is a fantastic production to opt for.

Cinderella is being performed at The Palace Theatre from 21 April to 24 April. Tickets start at £11. Click here to buy.
