I will go and see the Cinderella as I have seen the Nutcracker too many times I feel already! Anyone seen this company and have any comments? What principals are the best to see does anyone know?

I checked the web site Ari posted and it's very informative. It seems the company performs mainly in Britain, which is why this may not have drawn that big a response here. There are a lot of reviews on the site, though, as well as info on the dancers and repertory, so it might give you at least a taste of the company.
If you see it, be sure to tell us about it!

They are a very good company and dance extremely well, I would rate them at the top of the 'second tier' of ballet companies. If you search the archives I have posted a number of accounts of this company.
Go and enjoy.

There was a small orchestra which I thought was a lovely touch for quite a small company - they handeled the prokofiev well though I'm not sure how the more grand Nutcracker numbers would come off. I didn't see the Nutcracker but those who did enjoyed it and it was a treat to see now rather than at Christmas with the annual overload of sweet, sugarplum twinkly type things.
The theatre was packed and there were many very happy children - I never realised that so many typically agitated and hyperactive kids would sit attentively through a ballet. Wow.
I definitely reccomend them, worth a look. Thank you for your posts,
