Music: Sergei Prokofiev. Choreography: Ben Stevenson. Conductor: Andrew Mogrelia. Queensland Ballet. Playhouse, QPAC, 5-20 April, 2013
Queensland Ballet started off its year with Cinderella and judged by the audience response it was a popular choice. The season had been sold-out before it began.
The first ballet under the leadership of its new artistic director, Li Cunxin, this production of Cinderella was created in 1970 by Ben Stevenson for National Ballet in Washington DC, who has been present in Australia during the restaging by Texas Ballet Theatre’s Tim O’Keefe.
