Colorado Ballet Presents Ben Stevenson's Cinderella March 10-19, 2023 at the Ellie Caulkins Opera House
DENVER, CO (February 21, 2023) – For the first time since 2014, Colorado Ballet will present the classic fairy tale ballet Cinderella. The rags-to-riches story comes to life during eight performances at the Ellie Caulkins Opera House, March 10–19, 2023, and features choreography by Ben Stevenson, O.B.E. To add to the magic, Sergei Prokofiev’s score will be performed live by the Colorado Ballet Orchestra.
“This ballet is perfect for both the young and the young-at-heart,” stated Artistic Director Gil Boggs. “Stevenson’s choreography seamlessly combines whimsical humor with classical sensibility and elegance. When paired with Prokofiev’s spellbinding score and spectacular sets and costumes, this ballet truly feels like something out of a fairy tale.”
Like the classic story, Ben Stevenson’s Cinderella follows the journey of a young woman who dreams of a better life. With a little help from a magical fairy godmother, her wish is destined to become reality—if the shoe fits. Rooted in romance and decorum, Cinderella is a tale of courage, hope and heart that is suitable for audiences of all ages.
“Sometimes, dreams do come true,” continued Boggs. “Bringing Cinderella back to Denver this season is one of those times. If you love The Nutcracker, I guarantee you’ll love this ballet as well. I encourage patrons to purchase their tickets early before the clock strikes midnight on the opportunity to experience this beautiful production.”
Tickets for all eight performances of Cinderella are on sale now. Colorado Ballet’s production of Cinderella is presented by MidFirst Bank. Colorado Ballet also receives support from the Scientific and Cultural Facilities District (SCFD).
