THAT much-loved fairytale from our childhoods is on its way to Chesham - you know, the one with a downtrodden young girl, a glass slipper, two comic ugly step-sisters and a handsome young prince.

And this time Cinderella’s story will unfold in dance, as the Vienna Festival Ballet present their full length version of this popular tale.

With a specially commissioned score created solely for the company by renowned conductor and musical director Chris Nicholls, and music from some of Rossini’s most famous operas, La Cenerentola and Silken Ladder, audiences will be quickly transported into a magical fantasy world.

Expert choreography is by Sheila Styles from the Sadlers Wells Royal Ballet.

Vienna Festival Ballet presents Cinderella at the Elgiva, Chesham on Sunday, June 5, 2pm.
