Presented by Bridgestone Americas Trust Fund
October 28-30, 2011 at TPAC's Polk Theater
Part of Nashville Ballet's Family Series
Thank you to everyone who was able to attend one of our three sold out performances of Cinderella! We hope you enjoyed your experience and we look forward to seeing you at the next show!
In this classical ballet, a handsome prince, two ugly stepsisters (played by men dancing in pointe shoes) and an evil stepmother come together to tell the story of a poor, lonely girl who finds a new life with the help of four magic fairies.
This universal tale of love, good winning over evil and the power of dreams intertwines comedy and drama to offer a classical ballet experience for the whole family.
Cinderella includes a classic score from Sergei Prokofiev performed live by The Nashville Symphony Orchestra and original choreography from Paul Vasterling.
This large-scale, newly created production, which includes 18th Century period costumes in contemporary color palettes and impressionist sets never before seen in Nashville, will be performed by Nashville Ballet company members, second company members and a youth cast of dancers from the School of Nashville Ballet.
Cinderella’s youth cast of dancers age 8 to 12 will add bumblebees, flowers, ladybugs and snow angels to the whimsical fairy tale.
Cinderella will be held at TPAC’s Polk Theater for three performances:
Friday, October 28 at 7:30 p.m.
Saturday, October 29 at 7:30 p.m.
Sunday, October 30 at 2 p.m.
