Ever wondered what happened to Cinderella and Prince Charming after they got married? Well Ballet Ireland takes up the story when the pair return from their honeymoon!
Our Ballet starts after the Ball and the most famous incident of a lost shoe in history. We meet the not quite so 'happily ever after' Cinderella and Prince Charming. The ballet opens with hilarious scenes as Buttons and the 'Ugly Sisters' prepare for the homecoming of the couple. Home come the ultimate fairytale couple, struggling to overcome their different backgrounds and Cinderella's humble beginnings as she settles in to being a ‘Princess’.
What Cinderella doesn't realise is that the Prince is bankrupt and he plans to auction off The Glass Slippers! Her fairy Godmother comes to the rescue once again and needless to say all's well that ends well and the pair truly are on the road to happily ever after.
Michael Seaver of the Irish Times said 'Together with librettist Stuart Price, Runacre-Temple has created a cleaver and witty sequel that is full of snappy set pieces. There’s plenty of fizzle throughout. Cinderella, although new, will still appeal to audiences used to the classics.'
