Next up for Pacific Northwest Ballet and much excitement for us all: CENDRILLON

Tuesday, December 20th, 2016
Seattle audiences soon will be treated to another Jean-Christophe Maillot story ballet — Cendrillon/Cinderella February 3-12. Maillot’s remarkably cohesive yet unpredictable choreography most certainly will be entertaining, as well as provocative. In his rendition of the tale, Cinderella’s mother (in the role of her fairy godmother) and father take center stage. Glitter covers Cinderella’s otherwise exposed feet, and secondary characters surprise with completely unexpected moves and attitudes. The quirky costumes and bare sets  enhance this morality play-cum-drama. Expect emotional dancing at its finest.A scene from Jean-Christophe Maillot’s Cendrillon.
