The company’s interpretation of the well-loved Cinderella comes complete with wicked stepsisters, glass slippers and happy endings and with Prokofiev’s sweeping score. The jubilant production is the work of one of Russia’s most esteemed ballet companies.
Sergei Radchenko, legendary principal dancer of the Bolshoi Ballet, founded the company in 1989 to create an ensemble that would bring together the highest classical elements of the great Bolshoi and Kirov Ballet companies.
