Ballet Cymru present Cinderella

Ballet Cymru, nominated by the Critics Circle UK National Dance Awards in 2013 as Best Independent Company, and winners of the Best Large Scale Dance Production at the Theatre Critics of Wales Awards, 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 brand new music score and circus elements combined with the finest classical dance. Ballet Cymru will be working 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.

Cinderella is a co production between Ballet Cymru and The Riverfront Theatre, in association with Citrus Arts.

‘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’
Jonathan Gray, Dancing Times

‘It’s a small enterprise with a great deal to shout about. The formula is winning, deftly translating each sentence of the story into vivacious, easily decipherable dance sequences.’
Deborah Weiss, Dance Europe

‘The dance is mature, elegant, sophisticated, refreshing; and dazzlingly alive.
A few minutes with Ballet Cymru lifts the spirits.’
