When Ella's mother dies, she is brought up by her devoted and loving father who teaches her the names and calls of the woodland birds that surround her home. But when her father marries again, Ella's peaceful life is turned upside down by a host of new and unpleasant relations. It appears her only allies are the feathered friends who roost in the trees, but they are no ordinary birds...
Nominated for an Olivier Award in 2013, Cinderella: A Fairytale’s quirky visual style, crystal-clear storytelling and original live music bring this classic tale of reversed fortunes imaginatively to life.
