Scottish Ballet’s festive favourite returns for the winter season with a new name, glittering new designs, and a charming twist to the tale.

Scottish Ballet – Cinders!

Breaking with tradition in theatre is a tradition in itself, and Scottish Ballet's playful new production of Cinders will have a surprise in store each night for audiences as the curtain rises: on some nights, Cinders will be a woman, swept off her feet by her Prince, and on others, Cinders will be a man, swept off his feet by his Princess!

Set at the turn of the 20th century in Cinders’ family-run emporium, life is sweet until tragedy strikes, leaving Cinders an orphan. Enter the new proprietor, Mrs. Thorne, an intimidating mother of three ghastly children. Treating Cinders with contempt, they turn the store into a garish version of its former self. When the Royal Ball is announced, hilarity, excitement, and chaos ensue as the Thorne family begin their frenzied preparations to attend.

Taking refuge in an enchanted rose garden, Cinders is magically spun into a vision of sophistication and beauty, worthy of charming everyone at the ball. As the story of Cinders and the Thornes unfolds, who will get their fairy-tale ending?

Choreographed by Christopher Hampson, with stunning art-nouveau-inspired set and costumes designed by Elin Steele, and Prokofiev’s irresistibly melodic score, performed live by the Scottish Ballet OrchestraCinders is everything you adore about the enchanted fairy tale – made sparkling, fresh and new.

Be part of the magic and fall in love with this classic tale all over again.

Enhance your experience of Cinders! with a pre-show talk on Fri 15 Dec and Fri 22 Dec 2023 where the Scottish Ballet artistic team will share some behind-the-scenes insights into the production. Book your tickets here.
