Nashville Ballet opens its 26th season with three presentations of Cinderella from Oct. 28-30.
With a classic score from Sergei Prokofiev performed live by The Nashville Symphony Orchestra and original choreography from Paul Vasterling, Nashville Ballet presents the classic fairy tale ballet.
Nashville Ballet company members are joined by the second company and a youth cast in this large-scale production. A handsome prince, two evil stepsisters (played by men dancing in pointe shoes) and a corps of fairies come together to tell the story of a poor, lonely girl who finds a new life with the help of a little magic and a fairy godmother. This newly created production includes 18th Century period costumes in contemporary color palettes and impressionist sets never before seen in Nashville.
