Christmas ballet on TV 2010

This Christmas, BBC2 will be showing David Bintley’s new Cinderella for Birmingham Royal Ballet

Performed by the Birmingham Royal Ballet in its 20th anniversary year, BBC Two broadcasts a new production of Cinderella – a dazzling visual experience choreographed by David Bintley.

The BBC will film the first cast, which is as follows :

Elisha Willis/Cinderella

Iain Mackay/Prince

Marion Tait/Stepmother

Carol-Anne Millar and Gaylene Cummerfield – Step-sisters ‘Dumpy’ and ‘Skinny’

Victoria Marr/Fairy Godmother 

The production brings together award-winning director and choreographer Bintley and internationally recognised artist and designer John MacFarlane, in their first-ever collaboration. Cinderella also sees Bintley collaborating with lighting designer David Finn for the first time.

Filmed by Ross MacGibbon – a former dancer with the Royal Ballet, now an award-winning film- maker, and set to Prokofiev’s beautiful score, this much-awaited new production of the classic fairytale promises to be a magical treat for all the family.

If you plan on going to see the show live, you can find all the details on the Birmingham Royal Ballet website.
