Cinderella

Once Upon A Time...

There was a very kind and beautiful girl named Cinderella, who lived with a very wicked Stepmother, two very jealous and ugly Stepsisters, and a very loving but weak Father. Cinderella, forbidden to attend the Royal Ball, remains at home until her Fairy Godmother appears, turns her into a gorgeous Princess, and whisks her off to the Royal Ball in a stunning crystal coach. The Prince, upon his first glance, falls in love with this lovely girl. But as the clock strikes midnight, Cinderella must flee the Palace before her Fairy Godmother's spell is broken and leaves her in rags. Fortunately, she loses one of her glass slippers, and the Prince promises to search the world for his true love...

On May 16th and 17th, Tacoma City Ballet and the Broadway Center for the Performing Arts with support from The Tacoma Philharmonic Endowment bring this breathtakingly beautiful classical ballet to the stage of the Pantages Theater. Featuring the dancers of the Tacoma City Ballet Company and the Tacoma Symphony Orchestra, Tacoma City Ballet's Cinderella, complete with Sergei Prokofiev's scintillating musical score, grand scenery and lavish costumes, promises to be a magical theatrical experience for the whole family.
