The musical focuses on the existential problem of Cinderella as an orphan girl growing in forced circumstances among her terrible stepmother and two stepsisters. As the reporter recounts to the audience Cinderella’s life and ambitions, he rejects any magical interventions and encourages Cinderella to face up to her own responsibility. Adapted from a previous version staged in Europe in 2013, Assepoester, Het Tamelijk Ware Verhaal, the lighthearted fairytale-themed story with a contemporary twist is performed by an international cast and packed with eye-popping spectacle.

Audiences will be brought on an enchanting journey with its high-tech scene projections and spectacular visual effects including the fascinating pumpkin and Cinderella’s dress transformations. Grammy-winning composer and musical director, Mr Matt Dunkley, who worked on Peter Pan, The Never Ending Story staged at RWS last year, will once again be the Musical Director and oversee the orchestration for Cinderella, A Fairly True Story.

One of the world’s leading orchestrators, arrangers and conductors, Mr Dunkley has worked on over 100 films including Moulin Rouge, Pirates of the Caribbean and Inception. For this production, he has worked with Mr Ad Van Dijk to create a refreshing and uplifting combination of original compositions and popular hits. The show’s choreography is led by the brilliant and classically-trained ex-ballet dancer Mr Martino Muller from Switzerland. Mr Muller was also the original choreographer for Peter Pan, The Never Ending Story.
