Cinderella at Dutch Opera & Ballet is inspired by the slightly darker and more poetic version of the tale by the Brothers Grimm and the original ballet music from 1945 composed by Sergei Prokofiev. The impressive sets and costumes are done by broadway and opera designer Julian Crouch. For this show he uses a fusion of historical Victorian fashion with haute couture from world renowned designers like Vivienne Westwood and Alexander McQueen.

Cinderella: a Cinematic Experience

To make the show an even more astonishing experience, multimedia artist Daniel Brodie has added a cinematic dimension that is amplified by the Dutch Ballet Orchestra. With over 45 musicians, creating synthesis between music and dance, the orchestra makes the ballet into something truly magical!
