Set to the music of Prokofiev, Cinderella is one of the most magical and hopeful of the storybook ballets, the enchanting story of wishes that really do come true. This full-scale production by the State Ballet Theater of Russia is choreographed by Vladimir Vasiliev, former principal dancer with the Bolshoi Theater Ballet. The State Ballet Theater of Russia was founded by Maya Plisetskaya, the legendary dancer and former prima ballerina of the Bolshoi Theater Ballet and is now under the direction of award-winning dancer and Moiseyev Dance Company soloist Nikolay Anokhin. The company has showcased the unparalleled art of Russian ballet to countries throughout the world, and now tours the U.S. with 55 of Russia's finest dancers in Cinderella.
