Houston Ballet presents Cinderella
The story has been a favorite for generations, but make no mistake, this is not your childhood Cinderella. More tomboy than princess, Stanton Welch's title character is a striking woman of substance, determination and spunk. She's in control, fighting the oppression and will of her evil stepmother with wit and vigor. And when she finds true love she grabs it – and wisely holds on with both hands.
Music by Sergei Prokofiev, choreography by Stanton Welch, scenic and costume designs by Kristian Fredrikson and lighting design by Lisa J. Pinkham.
