Cinderella 2016

We have just completed Cinderella 2016. A journey that started way back in 2014. Like The Nutcracker in 2014 we had two performances at the The Beacon Arts Centre in Greenock. In addition to these performance we added a third performance at  Barrfields in Largs. This was the first time Alba Ballet had performed outside Inverclyde.

The company comprised of 31 members which included our guest artist from Birmingham Josef Jagger who played the role of The  Prince. Our leading Lady was Mairi MacLeod from Greenock, who starred as our Cinderella.

Our Fairy God Mother was Rachel Ashmead from Largs and she was joined by Sarah Arkley and Amy Hughes from Greenock who played the roles of Cinderella's Step Sisters. Cinderella's Step Mother was Rebecca Holmes from Glasgow. To complete the main cast we had Emma Dunn from Glasgow as Cinderella's Father and India Wilmot from Greenock as The Ballet Teacher.

Our Corps De Ballet contained our remaining 23 members of Alba Ballet, which included Hannah McLaughlin,Elise Wilmot, Ellie Wood and Anissa McKay who had all performed lead roles in The Nutcracker 2014.

Due to having two venues for 2016 and the improvements we wanted to make on light and sound from 2014 we employed our own back stage crew who along with fantastic scenery from Border Studio and costumes from The Dance School of Scotland, helped set the scene for our production of Cinderella.

We are delighted that the majority of the company will remain together for Copellia 2018, and we are looking forward to working with them over the next couple of years along with new members who will complete the company for our next big production. 

 

Testimonials from Alba Ballets performances of Cinderella

Email from Rosemary Jagger- from Ripponden- 24th November 2016

I went to see one of the performances and was very impressed with the whole thing- polished performances, excellent venue, super costumes and scenery and fantastic choreography and teaching


Email from Matthew O Hare. Scottish Development International- 17th November 2016

Once again I’ve been left extremely impressed with the strong quality of teaching at Alba Ballet that shines through in the performances and commitment from your team to provide the highest calibre training to the next generation of performers. This was so evident in the level of progression your students continue to make at each performance I attend. Cinderella was a real step up in production with fantastic sets, use of costume and professional appeal – it really is quite impressive to watch the growth of the school and passionate support from audiences.

I have to say what a fabulous performance. 2 years of hard work and effort went into the show and it showed. Julie Gunn and her team have done a first class job. What a credit to Inverclyde to have this outstanding ballet company in our area.
