Our 35th performance season begins with ballet's epic story of transformation, Cinderella. Toni Pimble's original choreography and Prokofiev's beautiful score performed by Maestro Brian McWhorter and the musicians of OrchestraNEXT bring this fairy tale to life. With something for everyone—romance, comedy, fantasy, and new shoes—Cinderella remains one of the great ballets of all time.
Watch the mean stepsisters try their best to squash Cinderella's ever kind and gentle spirit, then turn green with envy as she dances the night away with Prince Charming. Before the clock strikes midnight you too will be transformed—with tears in your eyes, joy in your heart and more than a few laughs. Whether young or just young at heart, a balletomane or new to the art, Cinderella and her timeless story of hope and change will make you believe in dreams again. Learn more about Cinderella at Ballet Insider with EBC Artistic Director Toni Pimble, 45 minutes before curtain in The Studio, lower level at the Hult Center.
