BRB Cinderella on BBC 2 -- Christmas Day
Posted 24 December 2010 - 02:42 AM
David Bintley has used Prokofiev's music and followed the traditional structure used by Ashton. I particularly like the way Bintley has shown that the Prince finds love in a loveless court and that Cinderella finds love amidst her tragedy. The wicked step-sisters are danced by ladies. There is glorious choreography, glorious dancing, tragedy and comedy. The designs, by John McFarlane are spectacular.
This production is touring to the Lowry and Plymouth in January.
There is lots of information about the production on the Company website: http://brb.org.uk/
