Against the backdrop of Prokofiev’s luscious score, Ben Stevenson’s ballet brings Cinderella to life with both slapstick humor and lush romanticism. Cinderella suffers cruelly at the hands of her step-mother and two step-sisters, and yet is loving enough to offer a poor beggar woman some bread when she knocks at the door. Little does she know that the beggar woman is really her Fairy Godmother, prepared to grant her most fervent wish – to go to the Prince’s ball. Cinderella’s magical night unfolds against the backdrop of gorgeous sets and spirited dancing. But when the clock strikes midnight, Cinderella must make a choice – to tell the Prince who she really is, or return to a life overshadowed by her stepmother’s cruelty. A triumphant tale of courage, hope, wishes … and magic.
