The piece is incredibly flexible in its orchestration. The forces have ranged from over 200 adults and children on stage to smaller presentations with a narrator, chamber orchestra and one singer.
Recent performances have taken place in Bergen and St Petersburg.
Cinderella is an ambitious addition to the canon of Roald Dahl music commissions. It is principally scored for young players and singers, but there is also an optional "add-on" professional ensemble element. The work has been designed to be uniquely flexible to the requirements of schools and youth orchestras and can be presented in a variety of forms - from choruses with narrator and piano, to the full version with professional ensemble, string orchestra and flexiband.
