Victorian State Ballet (VSB) is delighted to bring Cinderella, its most loved and timeless fairy tale classic to The Concourse, Chatswood, on Saturday, April 9 (2:30pm and 6:30pm), and Sunday, April 10 (2:30pm).
The Cinderella story is retold through excellent staging, simple and direct mime, superb classical ballet technique and choreography which honour the spirit of this great classical work. VSB has performed Cinderella to sell-out audiences and rave reviews around the country. The production is full of passion, energy and elegance choreographed to the mesmerizing musical composition by Sergei Prokofiev.
Portraying life in a step family and moving from rags to riches, Cinderella reminds us of the power of kindness and forgiveness over hate and revenge. The ultimate choice of allowing our enemies to bring out the best in us is a strong clear theme. The VSB’s version of Cinderella endeavours to immerse the audience in amidst the fairytale classic which is visually inspiring.
The Concourse Cinderella season will feature internationally recognised artists. The lead roles will be danced by Mia Wallace, Janae Kerr and Elise May Watson-Lord as Cinderella; Sera Schuller as the Step Mother; Elise Jacques and Elise May Watson-Lord/Janae Kerr as Cinderella’s step sisters; and Cieren Edinger and Tynan Wood as the Prince.
Audiences can expect exhilarating solos and pas de deuxs from the lead couple and their very moving and ultimate happily-ever-after final scene.
Victoria State Ballet will present Cinderella at The Concourse, Chatswood from 9 – 10 April. For tickets, visit www.theconcourse.com.au.
