Cinderella

Basking in the acclaim for his masterpiece ballet Romeo and Juliet, Prokofiev was commissioned to produce a new romantic work: Cinderella. But then World War II arrived in Russia. While he set the fairy tale aside to focus on more nationalistic works, Prokofiev’s imagination began weaving a tapestry of pas-de-deux, waltzes, and mazurkas, all slightly inflected by the discord of the world around him. The work finally debuted in Moscow just two months after the end of the war, signaling a newly restored ability to revel in the simple blossoming of love.

It’s in good hands with one of the state’s largest professional dance companies, who close out their 2015–16 season with Prokofiev’s classic. The Manassas Ballet Theatre is joined by their in-house orchestra, whose handling of the lush, joyous score perfectly suits the international cast’s lush, joyous tutus. This performance takes place at the Hylton Performing Arts Center’s richly detailed opera hall, which the ballet troupe calls home.

Manassas Ballet Theatre

Manassas Ballet Theatre's 25 full-time dancers (10 of which are male) comprise the resident ballet company of the Hylton Performing Arts Center. For its shows, the theatre utilizes live music, usually orchestra, to underscore the dancing on stage. It all combines into an experience that has delighted both The Washington Post and readers of Virginia Living, among others. The Manassas Ballet Theatre also boasts an international cast of professional dancers.
