Houston Ballet will revive Artistic Director Stanton Welch’s Cinderella on March 2-12, 2017 in the Brown Theater at the Wortham Theater Center. The Australian Ballet premiered the production in February 1997 at the State Theatre in Melbourne, Australia, and Houston Ballet first brought it to Texas audiences in March 2008.
On his full-length classical ballet, Welch said, “It’s about standing up for yourself, making your own decisions, choosing your own path, your own love.”
Taking place across three acts, Cinderella features the original music of Russian and Soviet composer Sergei Sergeyevich Prokofiev, plus costumes and scenic design by Kristian Fredrikson, after Pytor Williams.
