Tickets for the Asian debut of ‘Cinderella, A Fairly True Story’ on sale now 

SINGAPORE, 5 October 2015 – From the internationally acclaimed creators of Peter Pan, The Never Ending Story (彼得潘, 永恒的传奇), comes the Asian premiere of Cinderella, A Fairly True Story (灰姑娘外传) on 10 December 2015, Thursday, at Resorts World Sentosa (RWS) in Singapore. 

Following the successful run of Peter Pan, The Never Ending Story at RWS, both Music Hall from Belgium and RWS have once again collaborated to stage Cinderella, A Fairly True Story at Resorts World Theatre. Told through a mix of original uplifting music and popular hits, dynamic dance choreography and dazzling magic, this production is set to captivate the entire family this year-end festive season.

“RWS is proud to add to the vibrancy and buzz to Singapore’s entertainment with Cinderella, A Fairly True Story. An enthralling theatrical production for all ages, this brand new English version follows the tale of Cinderella as we know it but through the eyes of an inquisitive reporter. Retaining the classic elements such as the ball, the pumpkin transformation and iconic glass slippers, the audience will follow this reimagined fable of Cinderella meeting her prince through a missing glass slipper. This original new take on one of the world’s most favourite classic fairy tales reflects RWS’ commitment on refreshing its strong portfolio of entertainment offerings and introducing never- before-seen productions to drive both new and repeat visitors,” said Ms Andrea Teo (张韵爱), Vice President of Entertainment, RWS (圣淘沙名胜世界娱乐统筹部副总裁).


Cinderella, A Fairly True Story is presented by RWS in association with Belgium’s Music Hall. It focuses on the existential problem of Cinderella as an orphan girl growing in forced circumstances among her terrible stepmother and two stepsisters. As the reporter recounts to the audience Cinderella’s life and ambitions, he rejects any magical interventions and encourages Cinderella to face up to her own responsibility. Adapted from a previous version staged in Europe in 2013, Assepoester, Het Tamelijk Ware Verhaal, the lighthearted fairytale-themed story with a contemporary twist is performed by an international cast and packed with eye-popping spectacle. Audiences will be brought on an enchanting journey with its high-tech scene projections and spectacular visual effects including the fascinating pumpkin and Cinderella’s dress transformations.


“We are delighted to bring this timeless relevant, touching story to RWS. We greatly enjoyed the collaboration last year, when we played Peter Pan, The Never Ending Story at this great venue. But there’s more to Cinderella’s story than we always thought. A highly talented team of creatives now presents the real story. Cinderella’s tale is sometimes funny, sometimes tough, sometimes happy, sometimes sad, sometimes confusing, but always fairly true,” said Mr Geert Allaert, founder of Music Hall as well as producer and artistic director of Cinderella, A Fairly True Story.


Grammy-winning composer and musical director, Mr Matt Dunkley, who worked on Peter Pan, The Never Ending Story staged at RWS last year, will once again be the Musical Director and oversee the orchestration for Cinderella, A Fairly True Story. One of the world’s leading orchestrators, arrangers and conductors, Mr Dunkley has worked on over 100 films including Moulin Rouge, Pirates of the Caribbean and Inception. For this production, he has worked with Mr Ad Van Dijk to create a refreshing and uplifting combination of original compositions and popular hits.


The original direction and scripting was entrusted to the award winning Mr Stany Crets who also created the original idea for Cinderella, A Fairly True Story. 
He has received multiple awards for his work including a Vlaamse Musical Award for Best Director for Spamalot. Ms Karina Mertens is the director for this renewed version of Cinderella, A Fairly True Story. 
The show’s choreography is led by the brilliant and classically-trained ex-ballet dancer Mr Martino Muller from Switzerland. Mr Muller was also the original choreographer for Peter Pan, The Never Ending Story. Mr Niek Kortekaas is the original set designer and Mr Erik Vernieuwe is the original costume designer for Cinderella, A Fairly True Story.
