This year's run of Cinderella is sold out. You can secure your seats for Cinderella next season by becoming an SF Ballet subscriber!

Gather your friends and family for the must-see dance event of the season: the U.S. premiere of Christopher Wheeldon’s magical new production of Cinderella! Inspired by the Brothers Grimm and Perrault fairy tales, this wildly imaginative co-production with Dutch National Ballet features something for everyone: 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.

Approximate running time for Cinderella is: 2 hours and 33 minutes
