"If you are looking for magic, you will find it here... a
breathtaking Cinderella that will enchant audiences lucky
enough to see it." Ann Hunt, Sunday Star-Times.
Christopher Hampson's Cinderella returns to our stage in
August. Acclaimed New Zealand designer Tracy Grant Lord's sumptuous
costumes and lavish sets draw you into a glittering fantasy
In her grief, the young Cinderella plants a rose at her mother's
graveside. When her father remarries, the future seems bleaker than
ever. Her wicked stepmother is intent on pushing kind and beautiful
Cinderella aside in favour of her two nasty step-sisters. The
course of true love never did run smooth, but in this best loved of
all fairy tales, Cinderella meets her prince.
Dazzling against the light and dark of Prokofiev's powerful score,
this ravishing interpretation of the timeless rags to riches
romance is everything you could wish for and more.
