Every little girl loves to spin, dance and believes that they are the one true fairy princess of all the land! My little princess especially loves anything and everything that has to do with ballet. She wears her tutu around the house and every night is ready to one of her many princess stories. So, when I found out about the Sacramento Ballet’s showing of Cinderella- I knew this would be a perfect “girls date” for me and my little one.
One of the world’s most beloved fairytales, Cinderella is the ideal ballet for Valentine’s Day Weekend, and Ron Cunningham’s telling of the “rags to riches” love story is a treat from start to finish. Pageantry and humor, magnificent dancing, and glorious music, characters we have known for decades seen through the magic of dance. Cunningham’s Cinderella has been seen in major cities throughout the world. It was the first American ballet to be performed in the People’s Republic of China, and the live broadcast of the production was aired to over 30 million people. This production has not been seen in Sacramento since 1997, so from the hilarious Stepsisters, the handsome Prince, to Cinderella and her pumpkin coach, experience the fun all over again – quick, before the clock strikes twelve.
Show times for Cinderella are:
February 9th at 7:30pm
February 10th at 7:30pm
February 11th at 2:00pm and 7:30pm
February 12th at 2:00pm
