Audiences will be swept into a magical world where one young woman’s life is forever changed by a fairy godmother and a delicate glass slipper. The ballroom scene is stunning with refined ladies of the Court waltzing gracefully and flower fairies dancing with the coachmen. Juxtaposed, are the wicked stepsisters as they cavort in the most outrageous and amusing manner hoping to capture the attention of Prince Charming. But in the end, it is the fair and lovely Cinderella who wins the heart of the Prince.
Ballet Ariel’s production is performed to Sergei Prokofiev’s captivating score. The original choreography by Ballet Ariel Director Ilena Norton is elegant and dynamic, flooding the stage with a post-modern classical gem. Collaborating choreographers, Oleg Dedogryuk and Gregory Gonzales, contribute dances in their unique contemporary styles, perfectly complimenting Norton’s classically beautiful style.
