San Francisco Ballet in Wheeldon’s Cinderella (© Erik Tomasson)
San Francisco Ballet is pleased to present the New York premiere of Christopher Wheeldon’s magical new production of Cinderella. Set to the music of Prokofiev and inspired by the Brothers Grimm and Perrault fairy tales, this wildly imaginative co-production with Dutch National Ballet features dramatic music by Prokofiev, spectacular sets and costumes by Julian Crouch (renowned for his designs for Metropolitan Opera and the Broadway musical The Addams Family), and ingenious puppetry by Obie Award winner Basil Twist. Upon its world premiere, the Financial Times called Cinderella “dazzling… a triumph of storytelling and stage design firmly in touch with the 21st century.”
