Cinderella in Seattle
Pacific Northwest Ballet continues its 47th season with the return of Founding Artistic Director Kent Stowell’s wondrous Cinderella. Cinderella runs for ten performances only, January 31 through February 9 at Seattle Center’s Marion Oliver McCaw Hall.
Last seen at McCaw Hall in 2012, PNB’s production conjures rare enchantment from this best-loved fairy tale by recalling Cinderella’s long-lost mother in a tender memory scene and then returning her in the guise of the Fairy Godmother. As if stepping between the pages of a beloved story book, the ballet’s breathtaking beauty, in union with Prokofiev’s evocative score, vividly illustrates the familiar narrative and supports a rich array of character roles—from silly step-sisters to tiny dancing pumpkins to a gentle, handsome prince. And when her ivory carriage rolls to a stop at the entrance to a magnificent golden ballroom and Cinderella takes her first, shy steps into the midst of swirling, scarlet-clad dancers, all hearts go with her into this dream come true.
Tickets are available through the PNB Box Office online at PNB.org
