Choreographer Christopher Wheeldon.

Christopher Wheeldon’s acclaimed new Cinderella for the Dutch National Ballet is an imaginative interpretation of a muchloved classic. Inspired by the original Brothers Grimm fairy tale, Wheeldon gives the characters renewed depth and complexity, complementing Prokofiev’s celebrated and colourful score. With sets and costumes by the renowned designer Julian Crouch, supported by stunning stage effects, this world premiere production is a truly magical experience, bringing an World-premiere production and filming.

Co-Production between Dutch National Ballet & San Francisco Ballet.

Wheeldon’s version takes a darker view, with more of the Brother’s Grimm version of the story rather than the traditional 1697 Charles Perrault fairy tale.

Extra features include: 60 Wigs, Cast interviews and a Choreographer’s Commentary with Christopher Wheeldon.

Running time: 139 minutes

Subtitles: N/A

Sound format: 2.0LPCM + 5.1(5.0) DTS

****

“After a convoluted start, Christopher Wheeldon's narrative offers magic in every sphere - design, choreography, and orchestra. Anna Tsyganova's Cinderella is charming.”
