Whether you have never seen a performance of The Nutcracker or haven't been to the ballet since you were a child, you won't want to miss LifeLong Learning's trip to Ballet Arizona to see Cinderella.
As if stepping between the pages of a beloved storybook, Ib Andersen’s Cinderella delights audiences with the beauty and majesty of classical ballet, wrapped in the promise of “happily ever after,” and generously sprinkled with a wonderful dose of humor.
With the music of Sergei Prokofiev, the ballet includes a fairy godmother, a handsome prince and an unforgettable ball. The magnificent staging, music and costumes make this production a delight for all ages.
Ballet Arizona is an innovative and provocative professional ballet company that creates, performs and teaches outstanding classical and contemporary ballet. The company is dedicated to preserving and celebrating classical dance, while creating and commissioning new, innovative works.
Our visit begins with a pre-ballet lecture. After the performance, we'll have dinner at Alexi's before returning to PebbleCreek.
DATE: Saturday, Feb. 17, 12:15-7:45 p.m.
