Lyon Opera Ballet: Cinderella

When: Fri., April 24, 8 p.m., Sat., April 25, 8 p.m. and Sun., April 26, 2 p.m. 2015

Lyon Opera Ballet has revolutionized the classical ballet world, presenting contemporary works with its witty choreography. In Cinderella, Maguy Marin’s magical retelling of the Cinderella fairy tale, the story unfolds in a three-story dollhouse, a child’s world of toys and wonder. Human dancers are transformed into fat-cheeked dolls, Cinderella scoots off to the ball in a toy car, Prince Charming searches for her on his rocking horse, and Prokofiev’s score is complete with coos and gurgles.
