Cinderella Returns to Hull New Theatre

This October, Northern Ballet makes a highly-anticipated return to Hull with its enchanting adaptation of Cinderella, the world’s most famous rags to riches fairytale. Choreographed by David Nixon OBE and combining thrilling dance with magic and circus skills, Cinderella will be at Hull New Theatre from 15 – 19 October 2019.

In Northern Ballet’s Cinderella, a tragic end to a perfect summer’s day sees Cinderella with no choice but to accept a desolate life of servitude. At the mercy of her wicked Stepmother, Cinderella seeks joy where she can but after encountering the handsome carefree Prince skating on a glistening lake of ice, she yearns for another life. Despite her sadness,

Cinderella never forgets to be kind and her generosity is repaid when a chance encounter with a mysterious magician changes her destiny forever. Cinderella is choreographed and directed by Northern Ballet’s Artistic Director David Nixon
OBE, who has also designed the opulent costumes. It is performed to an original score by Philip Feeney, which will be played live at every performance by Northern Ballet Sinfonia.

The magnificent transformative sets have been designed by Duncan Hayler, with lighting designed by Tim Mitchell.
David Nixon OBE, Artistic Director of Northern Ballet, said: ‘This production of Cinderella, whilst being immediately recognisable as the famous fairytale, offers something different to other traditional ballet adaptations. We have staged our ballet in the winter wonderland of Imperial Russia, opening up the possibilities of this colourful world as a new setting for
Cinderella to make her journey. Audiences will see the dancers skate on a glistening lake of ice, stilt walkers entertaining in a marketplace and the fateful Ball held in a Fabergé inspired ballroom. Cinderella is ultimately the story of a young woman who must travel a challenging road to achieve happiness and our ballet is a joyful adaptation filled with action, magic and
fun.’

Tickets are priced from £9 and are on sale now. To book visit hulltheatres.co.uk or call 01482 300 306.

Northern Ballet is holding an audio-described performance and touch tour for visually impaired patrons on Saturday 19 October 2019. For more information visit www.northernballet.com/cinderella-events
