The Royal New Zealand Ballet’s much-loved production of Cinderella is back! Renowned British choreographer Christopher Hampson’s ravishing interpretation of the timeless rags-to-riches romance is everything you could wish for and more. The TOWER Season of Cinderella will tour to seven centres throughout the country from 2 August – 9 September.

The story is classic… the cruel stepmother, the comedic stepsisters, a handsome Prince and a magical Fairy Godmother. But composer Sergei Prokofiev has given us more than this. For me his score shows growth, honesty, humility and love. It is a tale that shows us a journey from dark to light.

The costumes include more than 100,000 Swarovski crystals which were made especially for the RNZB by the Swarovski factory in Austria. Cinderella’s tutu and the cloak that she wears to the ball have been remade for this production and will have more crystals than ever before. Crystals have also been used to give sparkle to insect costumes and wings, the Stepmother’s negligee and the spider’s web. Make sure you see it!
