English National Ballet return to the Royal Albert Hall for the first time since 2019, with 14 performances of Cinderella in-the-round, featuring over 90 dancers, a live orchestra, magnificent sets and transformational projections.
This sparkling ballet will transport you to an enchanting kingdom where forest creatures live alongside princes, a growing tree appears to dance in the wind, and Cinderella’s wit and generosity get her to the ball – with the help of a little bit of magic.
Christopher Wheeldon’s glittering choreography sees the arena floor flooded with exquisite dancers, while Prokofiev’s sublime score is performed by the English National Ballet Philharmonia

Welcome to these extra-special sessions of Planet Play, forming part of our Children's Festival of Fun.
Planet Play offers a magical world of sensory learning, wonder and exploration, for babies and toddlers aged 0-3 years.
These 50 minute sessions will encourage young children to develop and explore the world around them through song, music, movement and a truly sensory experience.
Created by our Tales from the Shed team, Planet Play has been specifically devised to encourage play and early communication development in young children.
Research has shown that singing songs and rhymes on a regular basis helps to widen your child’s vocabulary and listening skills which are an essential part of learning to read, write and communicate.
So join us for musical fun and games, learn lots of new songs, play with puppets, dance and enjoy time with your little one.
Tales from the Shed are vibrant, inclusive theatre shows that are perfect for young children.
They are informal, lively and amazingly engaging as the performers and audience share the same space.
Every carefully planned show incorporates educational songs, movement and language games, which help promote brain development and early learning in young children.
Every show is different, with a new theme incorporated into the show each week.
Having worked in partnership with early years experts over three decades, our diverse team present educational stories featuring our much loved characters - from Can-Can the beautiful bird to laid back Lion Down and The Thing That Goes Blurgh!
“Ali was home. Things were not as good as when they were children… Ali wanted to leave, but wasn’t sure where to go… Suddenly a white rabbit in a Union Jack appeared…”
Ali arrives at the border of a strange land but entering isn’t as simple as it looks. Random questioning, people shouting ‘illegal alien!,’ and to make things worse Ali’s body keeps changing size. Will Ali ever be able to regain control?
Fun, ironic, and poetic, Ali in Wonder(Eng)land is devised by participants in LegalAliens’ free weekly classes for migrants and refugees. The show uses the familiar Lewis Carroll frame but with an absurdist, contemporary twist, mixing characters inspired by Alice in Wonderland with original material and extracts from the notorious Life in the UK test.
Performers take turns in playing Ali through a series of encounters with grotesque civil servants, mellifluous do-gooders, bigots with magic sunglasses that make foreigners disappear, two Home Secretaries and even… a Quing! The narration is from time to time interrupted by monologues sharing personal experiences of migration, some funny, some melancholic, some brutal.
LegalAliens Theatre is a Haringey-based, woman-led international ensemble dedicated to platforming migrants and refugees as artists, creatives and audiences.
LegalAliens Theatre is a Theatre of Sanctuary.
