Louisville Ballet’s ‘Cinderella’

You know the story: Woman loses shoe, prince finds it, wicked stepmother tries to spoil it all. But weave in a little ballet magic and pantomime (such as the stepsisters played by men), and the tale is renewed. This Louisville Ballet version was choreographed 40 years ago by Alun Jones, former artistic director, and Helen Starr, former associate artistic director and principal dancer. The music is by Sergei Prokofiev.
