Preview: “Cinderella”

24/02/2019

Cinderella was Rodgers & Hammerstein’s only musical originally written for television, and it was enormously successful, the first broadcast (1957) being watched by over 100 million people.

The stage version followed soon after and was also very popular. This is the classic fairy tale, complete with magic spells, a handsome prince and villainous stepfamily. It boasts a witty script and a very sumptuous score played by the University Orchestra.

The Rodgers & Hammerstein version is not a pantomime, but a humorous take on the familiar story, full of great music and wonderful songs including In My Own Little Corner and When You’re Driving Through the Moonlight.
