In the grand tradition of Russian ballet, these graceful dancers from Moscow perform one of the most exquisite fairy tale ballets of all time. 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 is filled with sumptuous costumes, lush scenery, comical stepsisters and a malevolent stepmother. Featuring an exuberant score by Prokofiev, it is easy to see why ballet enthusiasts have loved this ballet for generations. Russian National Ballet Theatre was founded in the late 1980s, and is committed to preserving and rejuvenating the timeless tradition of classical Russian ballet. “A cut above many of its rivals.” (The Washington Post)
