Film, ballet, television, theatre and opera - Emma Kingsbury has made a name for herself as a designer across them all. Her latest commission is to design a new interpretation of Cinderella for the Royal New Zealand Ballet Company, in a style she describes as Avant Baroque Maximalism. Emma's TV show designs include Blacklight and HBO's Finding Magic Mike, while ballet commission include The Crucible for Scottish Ballet and The Firebird for Texas Ballet. She arrived in New Zealand earlier in the week and joins Lynn to talk about Cinderella, opening at the newly refurbished St James Theatre in Wellington.
