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.
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.
