This Christmas, BBC2 will be showing David Bintley’s new Cinderella for Birmingham Royal Ballet
Performed by the Birmingham Royal Ballet in its 20th anniversary year, BBC Two broadcasts a new production of Cinderella – a dazzling visual experience choreographed by David Bintley.
The BBC will film the first cast, which is as follows :
Carol-Anne Millar and Gaylene Cummerfield – Step-sisters ‘Dumpy’ and ‘Skinny’
Victoria Marr/Fairy Godmother
The production brings together award-winning director and choreographer Bintley and internationally recognised artist and designer John MacFarlane, in their first-ever collaboration. Cinderella also sees Bintley collaborating with lighting designer David Finn for the first time.
Filmed by Ross MacGibbon – a former dancer with the Royal Ballet, now an award-winning film- maker, and set to Prokofiev’s beautiful score, this much-awaited new production of the classic fairytale promises to be a magical treat for all the family.
If you plan on going to see the show live, you can find all the details on the Birmingham Royal Ballet website.
