“Cinderella” is the classic story of the lowly stepdaughter who is tormented by her cruel stepmother and stepsisters, but with the help of her fairy godmother, gets to go to the ball at the palace, and eventually wins the heart of her prince. The sumptuous costumes, jubilant music by Prokofiev, lush scenery and hilarious double-roles of the stepsisters make the Russian National Ballet Theatre’s presentation of this masterpiece and evening not to be missed. The Russian National Ballet Theatre was founded in Moscow in the late 1980s during the transitional period of Perestroika, when many great dancers and choreographers of the former Soviet Union began exercising their newfound freedom by starting new, vibrant companies, bringing a fresh, invigorating spirit to the timeless tradition of classical ballet.
