If the slipper fits…

Consider this your invitation to the Royal Ball.

Step into the magical world of Cinderella, where pumpkins become carriages and fairy godmothers grant wishes. This timeless ballet tells the story of a young woman overcoming hardship (and a lost slipper) to find her courage and love’s destiny. When a fairy godmother grants Cinderella’s wish to attend the Royal Ball, will all her dreams come true…before the clock strikes midnight?

Choreographed by Sir Frederick Ashton and set to music by Sergei Prokofiev, this beloved fairy tale is sure to set your heart soaring. A visually stunning production with lavish sets and opulent costumes, Cinderella sparkles with classic British humor.

 

With Sincere Appreciation 
The 2018-2019 performances of Cinderella have been made possible by a generous gift from a sponsorship circle including the Stephanie L. Brown Foundation and an anonymous donor.
