A good company. Some fine dancing and clever choreography. Recorded music and a somewhat minimal set but I'm sure done for budgetary reasons. The costumes were fun and it was a somewhat new take on the cinderella story.

I really, really, really loved this production. I was hooked from the first minute. It was lovely, and modern, and cool, and my daughters and I had a blast. We have been to Segerstrom for a few musicals and to the Barclay to see the more...continued

A very sinuous and adult reworking of the classic fair tale as the fairy godmother character doubles as the ghost of Cinderella's biological mother and her father's enduring memory of the mother even as he tries to placate his second wife and step...continued

Our Tier 1 row H seats were excellent. The ballet was more modern than I expected, but I enjoyed the show. I took my Mom and my five year old, and we all had a good time........but it was not as good as I had hoped.

This was one of the best performances we have seen this year. The dancers were beautiful, the choreography incredible and the overall performance unexpected and delightful. This is a not to miss ballet performance.

A very unusual version of the ballet, which I thoroughly enjoyed, though I was glad I read the synopsis beforehand - or I might have been confused as to what was happening. It was beautifully danced, and the staging was great.

This was a different version of Cinderella than I was expecting, but it was good nonetheless. If I didn't read the performance summary, I would have been throughly confused on the storyline.

The ballet was a alternative version of Cinderella. Ballet with interpretive dance added much emotion to the story. The creative costumes and the whimsical, amusing characters (such as the manicans) made it off beat and interesting. The young...continued

The Monte-Carlo company's cup runneth over with beauty and talent, choreography, staging, and especially a unique, poignant interpretation.

I could not "get into" the musical score however, and it was a distraction.
