New production of Cinderella announced for winter 2010
07 December 2009
This week marks last chance to see The Nutcracker at Birmingham Hippodrome until 2011
Birmingham Royal Ballet is delighted to announce a brand new production of Cinderella to be performed at Birmingham Hippodrome during the company's winter season in 2010.
Cinderella will be choreographed by Birmingham Royal Ballet's Director David Bintley with designs by John Macfarlane, lighting by David Finn and music by Sergei Prokofiev.
The full-length, narrative ballet reunites the design team behind the company's ever-popular and Christmas family favourite, The Nutcracker. John Macfarlane's extravagant and magical designs are currently enthralling audiences of all ages at Birmingham Hippodrome in The Nutcracker until Sunday 13 December. The production will not be performed at the Hippodrome again until 2011.
David Bintley, Director for Birmingham Royal Ballet said:
'I am very excited to work on a new production of Cinderella. Not only I am delighted to be working with John Macfarlane, David Finn and the company's new music director Koen Kessels but 2010 also marks Birmingham Royal Ballet's 20th anniversary year in Birmingham. The announcement of a new production shows the company continues to go from strength to strength in this great city.'
