This brand-new Cinderella ballet, choreographed by the internationally acclaimed Christopher Wheeldon, was premiered by the Dutch National Ballet at the Amsterdam Music Theatre in December 2012.
The world premiere of Cinderella will be danced by the Dutch National Ballet on Thursday 13 December in The Amsterdam Music Theatre. The premiere by San Francisco Ballet is in 2013
To the music of the same name by Sergei Prokofiev (the most important composer of twentieth-century narrative ballet music), Wheeldon is creating an enchanting story of Cinderella, based on the version by the Brothers Grimm. In Wheeldon's version, Cinderella's tears grow into an enormous magical tree. Along with four spirits, the tree grants all Cinderella’s wishes.
Wheeldon gives depth to the characters in his ballet. Cinderella is portrayed not only as a victim, and the prince plays a bigger role than usual.
The sets and costumes are by the British designer Julian Crouch, renowned for his designs for Philip Glass’s masterpiece Satyagraha for the Metropolitan Opera in New York and the Broadway musical The Addams Family, among other works. For the latter production, he received a Drama Desk Award, one of the most important theatre awards in America. Cinderella is his first ballet production.
The production will have some very special stage effects. Wheeldon and Crouch
have opted for an almost cinematographic approach that will turn the thousand-year-old fairytale into a unique 21st-century experience.
Musical direction Ermanno Florio
Choreography Christopher Wheeldon
