State Street Ballet, Santa Barbara
Sunday, April 22 at 2pm

Choreographed by State Street Ballet’s Founder and Artistic Director Rodney Gustafson, former American Ballet Theatre principal dancer, this original and highly acclaimed production of Cinderella is a light-hearted retelling of everyone’s favorite fairy tale. From the hilarious Ugly Stepsisters (played to perfection by two dancing men), to the magic of the Fairy Godmother and the discovery of true love, this delightful performance warms the hearts of audiences of all ages. An entertaining production that has successfully toured across the United States, this classic story of the meaning of true beauty is told through spectacular choreography, Prokofiev’s luscious music, and the excitement of digital animation and opulent sets.

State Street Ballet employs 18 professional dancers from across the globe. Founded in 1994, the company combines the discipline and timeless elegance of classical ballet with updated, cutting-edge and contemporary choreography. It’s an event you won’t want to miss!

...and the glass slipper fits.
