Christopher Wheeldon—of An American in Paris fame—updates the timeless tale of Cinderella with stunning style and charming twists.
Set to the gorgeous score by Sergei Prokofiev, this ballet leaves behind the fairy godmother and talking mice in favor of a delightfully human story full of mesmerizing visual effects and the signature choreography that has made Wheeldon a fan favorite. With colorful sets and costumes by Julian Crouch, magical projections by Daniel Brodie, and breathtaking puppetry designed by Basil Twist, Wheeldon’s Cinderella is a fairy tale for our time.
