pros: wonderful performances, great evening of ballet; we introduced a daughter to dance and she had a lovely time. Seats were good and the Warner is a fine old theater.
flaws: choreography extremely classical; no orchestra (canned music).
A blockbuster bar none, Septime Webre’s Cinderella is a spectacle of opulence and beauty, athleticism and schtick, with ravishing costumes and Prokofiev’s ultra-lush score… all befitting a world-famous fairy tale. A ballet for all ages, Cinderella has it all… a wicked stepmother, evil stepsisters, a coach made from a pumpkin, a bevy of bumblebees and a wistful young heroine with a tiny foot, who meets her prince and lives happily ever after.
