Ballet Theatre of Queensland will celebrate 80 years as the state’s premier youth dance company by bringing its enchanting production of Cinderella to Brisbane audiences from January 19 for a season of 5 performances at the Concert Hall, QPAC.
This breathtaking ballet, based on the Charles Perrault fairy tale, draws on the music of Prokofiev to tell the story of the gentle Cinderella, her wicked stepmother and stepsisters, and her fairy godmother who, with a wave of her magic wand, makes all Cinderella’s dreams come true.
Choreographed by Artistic Director Timothy Brown, with sets designed by Bill Haycock and costumes by Carmel Wenck, Cinderella showcases the talents of 58 of Queensland’s finest young dancers, aged from 10 to 18 years, from 34 dance schools as far afield as Hervey Bay and Kingscliff.
Ballet Theatre of Queensland’s 80-year history reads like a who’s who of the State’s dance luminaries who have supported this unique organisation over the decades as it performed in regional and city centres, giving talented young dancers the chance to perform at a professional level.
Join Queensland’s premier youth ballet company at the ball, as it celebrates 80 years of ballet magic making by bringing this beloved fairy-tale to life.
