Cinderella©
Composer: Sergei Prokofiev
Choreographer: Christopher Wheeldon

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.

Runtime: 2 hours and 31 minutes, including 20- and 15-minute intermissions
