English Youth Ballet – Cinderella in Hollywood at Opera House Manchester on Friday 8th March and Saturday 9th March 2024.

English Youth Ballet’s newest ballet – Cinderella in Hollywood comes to the Manchester Opera House in glamorous, cinematic style.

Why go and see it?
The acclaimed production will star 8 international principal dancers and showcase the exciting talent of 100 of the region’s top young dancers.

Cinderella in Hollywood will take you back to the glamorous era of 1950s Hollywood movies. The lavish ballet draws its inspiration from the film star Grace Kelly who met Prince Rainier of Monaco at a press party and later married him. Cinderella is a seamstress on a film set and the Fairy Godmother is her late mother – a former movie star of the 1930s. Her wicked sisters are Hollywood starlets competing with each other for starring film roles. The Prince meets Cinderella at the press party but at midnight she flees from the scene leaving a sparkly silver pointe-shoe as the only clue to her identity.

The soaring musical score to Cinderella in Hollywood features music by Shostakovich and Gershwin and has a jazz-age feel. Much of the score is instantly recognisable – with gems such as Shostakovich’s Jazz Suite, Tea for Two and Smoke Gets in Your Eyes.
