Cinderella is a classic fairy tale, one of the bedrocks of fantasy literature and moral narratives. It is a story so popular the name itself has become a description for romance, love and fortitude. Opening the day after Valentine’s Day, Birmingham Royal Ballet’s production of this timeless story could not be more pertinent.
In ‘a glorious celebration of ballet,’ choreographer and BRB Director, David Brintley, won the Critics’ Circle National Dance Award for Best Classical Choreography with his production of Cinderella – which premiered in November 2010. Returning to Birmingham for a ten day run, David Brintley’s Cinderella has received widespread praise from critics across the country.
With lighting by David A. Finn and set designs from John F, McFarlane, the world renowned creative, the Birmingham Hippodrome stage will be further transformed into a fairy tale land of ‘wonderful dance, spectacular scenery, and a cast of characters that include mice, lizards and even a dancing frog.’ The composer for David Brintley’s Cinderella will be Sergei Prokofiev.
