Following Christopher Wheeldon’s colourful in-the-round restaging of Cinderella for performances at the Royal Albert Hall in June 2019, English National Ballet will bring the proscenium arch version of this whimsical ballet to audiences outside of London at Manchester’s Palace Theatre (17-19 October). This inventive production combines magnificent sets and costumes, beautiful choreography, and Prokofiev’s sublime score performed live by English National Ballet Philharmonic.
As part of its 70th Anniversary Season, English National Ballet will be celebrating and thanking its touring communities by giving away 70 tickets in each of the 4 cities it is touring to. Working with its partner venues, these tickets will be distributed to individuals who are making a positive impact in their community. To thank its audiences and fans, English National Ballet will also give a ‘Golden Ticket’ for a special English National Ballet experience to one audience member per performance throughout the tour. Opportunities will include behind-the-scenes tours, complimentary tickets, and meet and greets.
Alongside performances, English National Ballet will host a range of workshops and events throughout the tour, aimed to provide a gateway into the world of ballet and the productions the Company is touring this season. Activities include dance workshops for all ages, live drawing and behind-the-scenes talks. For more details, see www.ballet.org.uk/whats-on/
