San Francisco Ballet: Cinderella

Closed May 7, 2017

The contrast between the freedom of the natural world and the constricted frippery of balls and arranged marriages is imperative in Mr. Wheeldon's version; when that opposition is present, his Cinderella achieves a rare kind of harmony.

Why See San Francisco Ballet: Cinderella?

In Spring 2017, Christopher Wheeldon's sumptuous fairytale ballet from 2013 makes a welcome return to SF Ballet, in a co-production with Dutch National Ballet. This new take on Cinderella is based on the Brothers Grimm fairy tale, is a surreal dream-like ballet, set to Prokofiev's score and showcases both lavish sets and costumes by designer Julian Crouch, and ethereal projections by Daniel Brodie. A perfect ballet for both ballet fans and novices, this family-friendly production is a great way to get the kids to love dance.

Christopher Wheeldon is currently one of the world's most in demand dance choreographers, having created a celebrated Alice in Wonderland, and about to launch a new version of the Nutcracker for the Joffrey Ballet in Chicago. Wheeldon also won the 2015 Tony award for Best Choreography for the hit musical revival, An American in Paris on Broadway.
