“Cinderella is one of my all-time favorite ballets,” says Elizabeth DeFanti, MBC’s artistic and executive director. “The Prokofiev score is exquisite, inspiring exceptional dancing and a magical production from start to finish. I was so fortunate to dance the title role during my career and am so delighted to share this beautiful work with our MBC dancers and our community.”

MBC welcomes internationally acclaimed guest artists Daynelis Muñoz and Taras Domitro, who will perform the title roles of Cinderella and the Prince. As another highlight, MBC Music Director Stefan Stern will lead an outstanding orchestra of accomplished musicians in Prokofiev’s magnificent score.

Cinderella promises to enchant the entire family, with comical Stepsisters, a magical Fairy Godmother, an opulent Grand Ball, and a story in which true love prevails against all obstacles. The production is embellished with hand-crafted costumes and professional sets, lighting and theatrical elements.
