Cinderella is tormented by her selfish Stepmother and her ungainly Stepsisters, who are making ludicrous attempts to be beautiful and graceful in order to captivate the Prince at his ball. But when Cinderella is befriended by a mysteriously disguised stranger, who whirls her away to dance with the stars and transforms her with an enviable Grace Kelly-worthy gown, everything changes … until midnight! Alexei Ratmansky’s Cinderella for The Australian Ballet has wowed critics and had audiences swooning – and these luscious photos show what all the fuss is about.

Very limited availability for the Melbourne season, but you can still get tickets! Sydney and Adelaide seasons also now on sale.
