Why See Boston Ballet - Cinderella?
The Enchanting Story of Cinderella
An evening sure to delight audiences with its whimsical elegance, Sir Frederick Ashton's Cinderella returns to Boston Ballet after a successful premiere in 2014. The production, which is regarded as on of Ashton's greatest works, will be split into three acts to a score by the legendary Sergei Prokofiev and features all the enchantment of the well-known fairytale with modern touches.
One plucky housemaid's determined belief in happiness beyond drudgery and the transforming power of love allow her to break free; the story is daringly re-imagined for a contemporary audience and Cinderella's two spine tingling stepsisters take on a comedic approach.
Will Ashton keep tradition with men performing the role of the stepsisters? A role Ashton himself danced.

Music is only understood when one goes away singing it and only loved when one falls asleep with it in one's head, and finds it still there on waking up the next morning.
