As the touring troupe of the distinguished Voronezh State Theatre of Opera and Ballet, the State Ballet of Russia’s 65 dancers perform a repertoire of classic and contemporary Russian ballet. Prokofiev's Cinderella showcases the modernist icon's lush, melodic side. Dancers twirl and pirouette to passages including Cinderella's Waltz, which juxtaposes the jubilant excitement of being at the ball with spooky minor accents that evoke the character’s nervousness at meeting the prince for the first time on a stage in front of hundreds of staring people.

Genesee Theatre

Genesee Theatre began its life with a sellout. Opening its doors on Christmas Day, 1927, it welcomed audiences to four sold-out movie screenings, but those flickering stories weren't the only attraction. A $25,000 pipe organ—and that's in old-timey dollars—immediately caught the eye, while Italian marble, a stunning chandelier, and the building's Spanish Renaissance–style architecture dazzled.

Over the years, many changes occurred, the glamorous quotient rising or dipping with the times and the theater closing altogether in 1989. But when it reopened again in 2004, it was back in full force. Antique chandeliers and fixtures of the period had been brought in from around the country, the luxe carpet had been recreated from a 1927 photograph, and all the dust bunnies had been sent packing with generous severance packages. Yet not all the updates were of the old-fashioned sort: the stage was doubled in size, and cutting-edge technology was brought in to give the theatre's high-voltage visitors, from comedians to musicians, the star treatment.
