The story…

Cinderella lives in a grey world. As she stares into the ashes she cannot let herself dream like other girls. Upstairs it’s a riot of screaming colour as the stepsisters try on ball gowns. Their mother gushes as servants run in and out like ants. Comedy piles on comedy as the trio make some truly astonishing style choices.

Enter Fairy Godmother : Cinderella shall go to the ball. For Cinderella’s gown she borrows from the stars, the sun, the moon and a rainbow brushed with snow. Soon Cinderella unfurls into the being she truly is.

At the ball, dazzling days open up for Cinderella and the Prince. Each awakens in the other what otherwise could not be. Then, Cinderella in her haste loses her glass slipper – a slipper made of dreams. Without her dreams, Cinderella is lost. So is Prince Charming.

Enter once more the Fairy Godmother. As she raises her wand, her tender voice soars to the stars as she bids the pair ‘sleep, dream, believe…’

Massenet’s music underscores the action with wit, drama, and at times, sheer beauty – music that invites you to dream.

Falling In Love

A concert for Valentine’s Day

This concert features some of the greatest love-moments in opera and musical theatre – the rhapsodic love theme from Tchaikovsky’s ‘Romeo and Juliet’; the passionate ‘Habanera’ from George Bizet’s ‘Carmen’; the love-bombing duet from Puccini’s ‘La Boheme’. Plus we have favourites from musical theatre – the unforgettable songs of Gershwin, Rogers and Hart, Cole Porter and Leonard Bernstein.

There’s also fun and froth galore in Donizetti’s ‘Elixir of Love’ – a world of True Romance comics. The fun continues with the Catalogue Song from Mozart’s ‘Don Giovanni’ as a servant runs through a list of his master’s conquests as long as your arm.

It’s music to fall in love with.
