A spectacle for all ages, Septime Webre's Cinderella combines magnificent beauty, ravishing costumes, and Prokofiev's ultra-lush score in the retelling of this popular romance of a poor girl whose fairy godmother helps her win the love of a Prince. Storytelling at its finest--magic pumpkins, evil step-sisters, and handsome courtiers in a swirling mirrored ballroom scene from Versailles. Crackling with wit, lavish costumes, and dazzling dancing, Cinderella will sweep you off your feet.
