One of the most beloved fairy tales of all time gets a charming, dance-filled new reimagining in Twin Cities Ballet of Minnesota's Cinderella 1944: A Love Story. Set in England during WWII, Cinderella 1944 transports the tale of a peasant girl who dreams of escaping her lowly circumstances and meeting her true love to the harsh realities of war-torn London. Blending tragedy, humor, hope and love, this production, written specifically for Twin Cities Ballet of Minnesota and presented at The Cowles Center for Dance and the Performing Arts in Minnesota, explores Cinderella's struggles, survival and journey of discovery through a gorgeously choreographed assortment of swing, modern and classical ballet dance styles. It's a great introduction to live theater for younger audiences -- and a beautiful night of romance and dancing for all.
This show is recommended for ages 5 and older.
