Cinderella – Eden Court Theatre

Cinderella will be at the Eden Court Theatre in Inverness from Wednesday 26th – Saturday 29th January 2011 performed by the Scottish Ballet. Cinderella is one of the Scottish Ballet’s most popular productions and is directed by Ashley Page.

Cinderella Story

This much adored fairytale has been re-worked and described as being a decadent Vivienne Westwood meets Andy Warhol 18th Century France whilst our heroine looks to find happiness. The score penned by Prokofiev will be performed live by the Scottish Ballet Orchestra.

The Scottish Ballet’s talented dancers bring the Cinderella characters to life and offer a spectacular mix of classical and mordern dance which is both original and exciting to see.

Tickets are available from the Eden Court Theatre by calling 01463-234234 or Online via the Eden Court Box Office. If you are staying in Inverness to see Cinderella book your accommodation via the Inverness Guest House Association – B&B Inverness.

Eating out in Inverness – Johnny Foxes Pub

On Thursday four of us enjoyed dinner at Johnny Foxes Pub and Restaurant – it was great!

Courgette and white wine soup, served in a baked bap, was delicious. Two of us had fillet steak – tender, tasty and cooked just as ordered – you wouldn’t find better anywhere. The fish (haddock) and chips was also first rate. We had a very palatable bottle of Chilean red wine with our meal. The service from barman Tyce was excellent – friendly and efficient.
