Theatre Royal Bury St Edmunds is eagerly anticipating the return of Ballet Cymru to our stage with a sparkling and refreshing ballet based on the eternal fairy tale Cinderella. Ballet Cymru prides itself on being different and this show will be no exception, with a new music score and creative circus elements combined with the finest classical dance.
Ballet Cymru, nominated Best Independent Company by the Critics Circle UK National Dance Awards, and winners of the Best Large Scale Dance Production at the Wales Theatre Awards 2017, have worked with award-winning composer Jack White and Circus Company Citrus Arts to conjure up a surprising world of wonder and magic. Featuring choreography by Creative Wales Award winner Darius James and costumes by Welsh designer Steve Denton, this timeless story will be brought to life using the company’s unique blend of classical technique and storytelling.
Ballet Cymru are a young, vital group of dancers who are pushing back the barriers of classical ballet. Using powerful and timeless stories the company challenges its dancers to interpret some of the finest characters in literature. As a chamber ballet for Wales, they are committed to inclusion and innovation in dance and classical ballet, and to the highest standard of collaboration with dancers, choreographers, designers, composers and musicians.
Cinderella will be at Theatre Royal Bury St Edmunds Mon 11 – Tue 12 June as part of Once Upon A Festival, our annual children’s arts programme. Tickets are on sale at the Box Office, call 01284 769505, book online at www.theatreroyal.org/cinderella or visit the theatre in person.
