Re-imagining a classic fairytale
Ballet Jörgen brings a beloved fairytale to life with its telling of Cinderella. An innovative take on the classic, this stunning production by choreographer Bengt Jörgen offers a realistic, human look at Cinderella while highlighting magical aspects of the story. Jörgen’s choreography balances the fairy tale elements of the story with a contemporary treatment of Cinderella and her family relationships.
Glenn Davidson’s set design creates a fantastical environment based on the idea of the natural world reclaiming man-made structures. Inspiration for the set pieces is drawn from ice storms and old forests. Costume designs by Robert Doyle playfully echo each character’s personality. The ballet is set to beautiful music by composer Sergei Prokofiev.
