Viardot's witty and heart-warming adaptation of the classic fairytale is the perfect start to Christmas for audiences of all ages.


An orphaned young woman, Cinderella, is forced to cook and clean for her step-sisters and bumbling step-father - that is, until one day, when her magical fairy-godmother arrives and transforms Cinderella (and her life) for ever ...


Rarely performed since it was written in 1904, Cinderella has all the magic and humour one expects from this timeless story. Tickets are only £7 adults and £5 concessions.


Performed by leading local singers and a community chorus make sure not to miss this opportunity to see Viardot's wonderful opera.


Performance concludes 9pm


Food and drink available all evening from Sheaf Street Cafe (located within Duke Studios)
