The belle of the ball makes her first trip to Brisbane when The Australian Ballet opens its exclusive season of Cinderella, from 19-24 February.

Alexei Ratmansky’s Cinderella comes to QPAC’s Lyric Theatre for the very first time from 19-24 February 2016, following sell-out seasons in Melbourne, Sydney and Adelaide as well as acclaimed performances in Shanghai in 2015.

A witty, glamorous and romantic retelling of the classic love story, this production of Cinderella has become a landmark work in the Company’s repertoire since Alexei Ratmansky, the world’s most in-demand choreographer, created it for The Australian Ballet in 2013.

Cinderella earned the Company two Australian Dance Awards in 2014, for Outstanding Performance by a Company and for Principal Artist Leanne Stojmenov in the title role. The production also won two Green Room Awards in 2013, for choreography and visual design.

Set to one of the great ballet scores by Sergei Profokiev, the humour and charm of the Cinderella story is heightened by vibrant sets and costumes, designed by Jérôme Kaplan and drawing inspiration from Dior, Schiaparelli, 1940s Hollywood and Surrealist art.
