Founded by former Bolshoi principal dancer Sergei Radchenko, The Moscow Festival Ballet tours the world with 50 dancers drawn from across Russia. 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. Originally opened as a 1920s film and vaudeville venue, the State Theater reclaimed its youthful grandeur in a complete 2004 renovation that restored the original color scheme and elaborate trim.
State Theatre New Jersey
The State Theatre New Jersey was saved, as its website states, from "the ravages of time." Built in 1921 as a vaudeville and silent-film palace, the venue fell on hard times in the 1970s. In 2003, however, a $3 million renovation restored the State Theatre New Jersey to much of its original glory, as crews painstakingly rehabbed the ornamental plaster, terracotta exterior, and actor holding cells. Inside the theater, a stunning chandelier sparkles more brightly than ever below the venue's signature dome.
