This classic fairy tale follows a young woman’s journey from servant to princess in a story cherished by adults and children alike. Cinderella combines the magic of fairy godmothers and spells with the true emotions of love and heartache. Period costumes, glass slippers and a pumpkin carriage whisk audiences away to an enchanting world. Sergei Prokofiev’s score is played live by the Milwaukee Ballet Orchestra, and Milwaukee Ballet School dancers join the Company adding a delightful charm to the production.
