Founded in 1961 in the Russian city of Veronezh, the State Ballet Theatre of Russia has drawn critical praise in tours to the United States, France, England, Germany, Holland, the Czech Republic, India, and throughout Africa. The New York Times called a recent performance "full of enchantment" with "lovely scenery and graceful costumes." A favorite with Athens audiences, the company returns with its enchanting fully-staged production of Cinderella. The beloved fairy tale of Cinderella and Prince Charming comes to life in a beautiful performance filled with Prokofiev's unforgettable music, stunning dancers, beautiful sets, and dazzling costumes. This is an evening to share with the entire family.
Pre-concert lecture begins forty-five minutes prior to each performance.
