The Russian National Ballet Theatre returns with its production of Prokofiev’s Cinderella. One of his most popular and melodious compositions, Cinderella is the iconic tale of the virtuous servant girl who, with the help of her fairy godmother, is magically transformed, attends the royal ball, and captures the heart of the prince. This ballet masterpiece, filled with sumptuous costumes, lush scenery, comical stepsisters and a malevolent stepmother, will delight audiences of all ages.

The Russian National Ballet Theatre was founded in Moscow during the transitional period of Perestroika in the late 1980s, when many of the great dancers and choreographers of the Soviet Union’s ballet institutions were exercising their new-found creative freedom by starting new, vibrant companies dedicated not only to the timeless tradition of classical Russian Ballet but also to invigorate this tradition as the Russians began to accept new developments in the dance from around the world.
