The Hong Kong Ballet – Cinderella

 

Celebrate summer with the enchanting fairytale of Cinderella and the Ugly Stepsisters!

The glass slippers, the pumpkin coach and the clock striking midnight – everyone knows the iconic motifs of this enchanting fairytale ballet. Watch Cinderella’s dreams come true as she is whisked from the daily grind of drudgery to a life of happily-ever-after with the help of a magical makeover from her Fairy Godmother.

The Hong Kong Ballet will open the new dance season with Cinderella, a fairytale ballet for the whole family this summer. Choreographed by David Allan to a dramatic and melodious score by Sergei Prokofiev, with magnificent sets and costumes designed by Peter Cazalet, Cinderella will be performed at the Hong Kong Cultural Centre’s Grand Theatre from 31 August to 2 September 2012.

This much-loved story captures the romance of Cinderella and the Prince, the magic of the glass slipper, the hilarious antics of the Ugly Sisters and the glittering elegance of the Royal Ball. With a swish of her magic wand, the Fairy Godmother turns a pumpkin into a sparkling coach, and mice into horses. As well as the magic of Cinderella’s transformation, watch out for the ugly stepsisters’ hilarious slapstick antics that provide more than enough wit and humour to get the whole family giggling.

Tickets are available at all URBTIX outlets and via URBTIX website, www.urbtix.hk, from 29 June 2012. Suitable for children aged 3 and above. A range of fringe activities will be held to enhance the audience’s appreciation for this delightful ballet, including a lecture demonstration on 21 August, a pre-performance talk on 31 August and a pre-performance workshop especially for children on 2 September.
