Cinderella - American Ballet Theatre

Subscribe Now

Approximate running time 2 hrs. 24 min.

Ashton's Cinderella is widely considered one of the greatest ballets of this timeless rags-to-riches fairy tale. Performed to Prokofiev’s hauntingly soaring score, this romance is a stage fantasy to enrapture children of all ages as well as a cornucopia of sly wit and inventive choreography to sate the most devoted of ballet fans. Colorful characters abound, including the gloriously grotesque stepsisters portrayed, as is the tradition, by male dancers who introduce a wonderful note of pantomime comedy.
