Following on the heels of a wonderful festive season, Cape Town City Ballet presents the folk fairytale of the sweet-tempered Cinderella, a young woman with a heart of gold who is left in the care of her two ungainly, forgetful & generally disagreeable step-sisters, Violet & Daffodil, contributing to Cinderella’s woes.

Relegated to the role of a kitchen maid in her own home, she scrubs and cleans all day dressed in rags.

The Prince who lives in the castle across town, decides to hold a magnificent ball in search of the perfect bride, and sends invitations out far and wide …. Cinderella is unable to attend the ball….she has nothing to wear anyway!

Then magic happens…. Enter a Fairy Godmother and her miracle wand, Cinderella goes to the ball in a beautiful ballgown and a fantastical carriage. The twist in the story is that she must promise to return home by midnight when the carriage will turn back into a pumpkin. Dancing the night away in a whirl of glamour with the prince the clock starts to strike midnight, and Cinderella flees home inadvertently leaving one of her crystal slippers behind.

The lost slipper is found …… and a nationwide search ensues for the golden girl to whom the slipper belongs …… a gloriously happy ending emerges in which Cinderella and her Prince live happily ever after!

The beautiful dancers of CAPE TOWN CITY BALLET delight in bringing their audiences this magical and uplifting tale where good always prevails. Audiences will be treated to a sparkling & captivating journey of magic and wonderment and all the feel-good moments of the summer season!

The CAPE TOWN PHILHARMONIC ORCHESTRA appears at select performances.
