Cinderella at the Riverfront, Ballet Cymru

I thought this was a good show, although I found the storyline harder to follow because I’m used to the storyline in the film. I thought that the music was fantastic because the instruments complimented each other making the story come to life.

The dancers were very good because they moved so elegantly, and I could easily tell which character were which, because of their facial expressions and their movement.

I thought that the projection was cool because it showed how time passed, but my one problem was that sometimes the trees blocked the dancers, and because of that I could not see them dance.

I really enjoyed the feet being chopped with an axe because they stuck to the true story and it was quite funny.

I would say that other people should see the show because it is a different view of the story and people might see the characters in a different way, for example, the step sister turns out to be quite nice in the end rather than being evil.

Well done Ballet Cymru, I will happily come again.
