Scottish Ballet Cinderella
Dance lessons from a grasshopper and a dress spun by magic. Give in to light, love and transformation in this classic tale.
The ultimate spectacle. Primary colours that burst out of the darkness. Billowing ball gowns whisking you into a magical world. And Prokofiev’s irresistibly melodic score showing well-loved characters in a whole new light – performed live by the Scottish Ballet Orchestra.
Christopher Hampson’s Cinderella is everything you adore about the classic fairy tale – made fresh, funny and touching.
We meet Cinderella at the saddest of times, then see her taken for granted by her wicked stepmother and two nasty stepsisters. But there’s no time for despair: Cinderella’s fairy godmother is casting spells of dressmaker spiders, magical roses and a very special glass slipper. Will love conquer loneliness, and light chase away the dark? Be part of the spectacle, and rediscover this classic tale.
Devised by our artistic director for Royal New Zealand Ballet in 2007, Scottish Ballet staged the European premier of Cinderella to widespread acclaim in 2015.

Ever wondered how a ballet production comes together from music, dancing to costumes and stage props? Join Scottish Ballet's for an in-depth look at their production of Cinderella.
Scottish Ballet bring Christmas to Edinburgh and we love it when children get to experience the magic. Why not take the little ones to a shorter, more accessible ballet production?
