By returning to the Brother Grimm's original story of Cinderella, the Lyric Hammersmith theatre presents a Christmas show for the whole family with a top-notch creative team including Norwegian 'ice musician' Terje Isungset.

It is winter. The Queen has declared that there will be a glittering festival of music, magic and dancing so that her son might find the girl of his dreams. Everyone is invited to his astonishing palace. But…Cinderella won’t be going to the ball unless she manages to finish the impossible tasks her sisters have set her. Maybe her friends from the forest can help her?
 
Writer and director Melly Still has worked in theatre as a director, designer, choreographer and adaptor. Her directorial credits include the hugely successful Coram Boy. In 2010 she will direct Mozart’s unfinished opera Zaide for Classical Opera Company.

Norwegian 'ice-musician' Terje Isungset is one of Europe’s most accomplished and innovative percussionists. With over two decades experience in jazz and Scandinavian music he pushes the boundaries of each genre. Terje has been commissioned to compose music for jazz festivals, dance performances, theatre and film. He has released five critically acclaimed solo CDs of his compositions.
