You shall go to the ball
Glass slippers and tiaras at the ready, one of ballet's most enduring fairytales comes to Denver to capture the imaginations of all ages. Colorado Ballet brings Prokofiev's uplifting rags-to-riches tale of a young woman whose determination of spirit ultimately triumphs over the cruelty endured at the hands of her wicked stepmother. Music, dance, and costumes all combine to make this an otherworldly experience for ballet fans new and returning.
Perfect for young ballet fans
A fantastic way to get children and teenagers engaged with performing arts, this classical-style ballet first premiered in 1970 at the Washington Ballet, and retells the popular fairytale of Cinderella, from her happy beginnings, her tragic upbringing, and eventual happiness at winning over adversity - with a little help from a certain fairy godmother, of course. The world has gone Cinderella-crazy in recent years following the release of Disney's live-action movie, and this cheeky and charming rendition through dance is a delight for all ages.
