Cinderella encores this Sunday at Palace Cineplex

The Australian Ballet performs the classic 'Cinderella'.

Witty, vibrant, glamorous and romantic, Alexei Ratmansky's Cinderella will sweep you off your feet as this stunning Australian ballet production comes to Palace Cineplex.

As Cinderella works to support her stepmother and sisters, she watches as they prepare for a magnificent ball being held by the Prince of the land, knowing that they will not permit her to attend. When they leave, she imagines herself dancing at the ball in a beautiful gown, wishing that she could attend.

The Fairy Godmother takes pity on her and visits Cinderella to transform her rags into a ballgown, transporting her to the ball and warning her that the magic will vanish at midnight.

At the ball, Cinderella meets the Prince and it is love at first sight, but at the stroke of 12 midnight, she runs from the ballroom, leaving her slipper behind. Travelling the land, the Prince searches for his lost true love, and the moment that Cinderella fits the slipper, they live happily ever after.
