One of the most famous of all stories, this Cinderella production or the Russian National Ballet Theatre features Prokofiev's endearing setting of the fairy tale.
The Russian National Ballet Theatre was founded in Moscow during the transitional period of Perestroika in the late 1980s, when many of the great dancers and choreographers of the Soviet Union's ballet institutions were exercising their new-found creative freedom by starting new, vibrant companies dedicated not only to the timeless tradition of classical Russian Ballet but to invigorate this tradition as the Russians began to accept new developments in the dance from around the world.
"The beauty of the dancing and the costumes made this a real cultural treat that is not to be missed when it comes to Fairfax this month." -Yvonne French, DC Metro Arts 2015
