Cinderella Featuring: Elisha Willis and Ian Mackay With Principal Dancers and Corps de Ballet of the Birmingham Royal Ballet Choreography by David Bintley Music by Sergei Prokofiev This new production, costing over 1.5 million dollars, is a theatrical banquet for the eyes in terms of scenery, lighting and costuming. Choreographed with real emotional resonance, it opens with the funeral of the young Cinderella’s mother and her introduction to her future stepmother and stepsisters. Flashing ahead ten years, the grown Cinderella is bullied in a dismal kitchen by her sisters who tread a nimble line between comedy and nastiness. The fairy godmother arrives and all turns to magic. The gleaming coach is brought on by mice and lizards, and the ball scene is a feast of swirling decadence. At the stroke of midnight Cinderella disappears through the whirring mechanism of an amazing clock. In the end, the prince rescues her from her greasy kitchen, but she, in turn, rescues him from a court without love. 109 min., filmed in 2010, first DVD release 2011
