Christopher Wheeldon’s Cinderella© is a fairy tale for our times—and a ballet experience unlike anything you’ve seen before. “All ‘Cinderellas’ should look and dance as well as this one,” exclaimed the SF Chronicle. This wildly imaginative, humorous, and romantic production features a powerful Prokofiev score, truly spectacular sets and costumes by Julian Crouch, lighting by Natasha Katz, magical projections by Daniel Brodie, and breathtaking puppetry by MacArthur Foundation Fellow Basil Twist.

“Where ballet goes from here is anyone’s guess, but as dancers and choreographers continue to flock to Tomasson, the tell-tale signs may well be found in California.”
