Choreography by Alexei Ratmansky
Music by Sergei Prokofiev
Libretto by Nikolai Volkov
after motifs from the fairy tale by Charles Perrault
The fairy godmother. The stroke of midnight. The glass slipper. Triumphantly returning to the Kennedy Center after a series of sold-out performances in January, St. Petersburg's Mariinsky Ballet performs Alexei Ratmansky's Cinderella. Ratmansky's romantic and moving version, a contemporary take on the classic fairy tale, blends tradition with innovation in a captivating showcase of wit, charm, and bravura style, intensified by Prokofiev's exquisite music. Filled with gorgeous pas de deux, endearing characters, and countless magical moments, the production hits "just the right note of wonder, timidity and excitement," (The New York Times) and offers grand ballet with a contemporary twist.
Oct. 16–21, 2012 | Opera House | Tickets from $29
