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. With fairies and a secretly powerful beggar, Nikolai Volkov’s scenario adds a little extra magic to the tale of a servant girl who loses a slipper and the prince who finds it and momentarily confuses it for an avant-garde drinking glass.

Metropolitan Ballet

Founded in 2002 by Erik Sanborn, a Minnesota native whose art has taken him to stages across 25 countries, the Metropolitan Ballet curates a company of skilled dancers, some with ties to such prestigious companies as the Bolshoi Ballet. The curriculum is grounded in the Vaganova method of ballet, which emphasizes a strong core and full-body perfection of movement. The company also stays busy with a full season of performances, with lavishly costumed dancers moving through dramatic stories that have ranged from Dracula to The Nutcracker.
