Birmingham Royal Ballet will be dancing Cinderella at Birmingham Hippodrome again this winter, 21 November-9 December.

Choreographer and Director David Bintley said:

“I’m very much looking forward to Cinderella returning. It was a such a runaway success at is premiere, before being televised almost immediately, that I hardly had time to stand back and take stock. The difficulty with making any new piece is that you spend so much time working so closely on it that it can be hard to view it dispassionately. So I’m really looking forward to this revival, and getting the chance to look at it again with some distance. I’m just keeping my fingers crossed that the public will embrace it in the same way they did for its first run!”

Some of John Macfarlane’s designs for Birmingham Royal Ballet’s production of Cinderella have been included in a major new exhibition by The Society of British Theatre Designers at the Royal Welsh College of Music and Drama, Cardiff!

Entitled Transformation and Revelation, the exhibition aims to provide an insight into how an idea becomes a design, and how it then reaches the stage in a realistic form. Around 200 exhibitors are contributing work.

John Macfarlane’s materials – selected by the designer himself – include the original modelbox for Cinderella, and drawings of many of the characters.

Transformation and Revelation is open weekdays from 9.30am to 8pm and weekends between 10am and 5pm between March 18 and April 16 2011. Entrance to this exhibition is free to the general public.
