Cinderella in Lynchburg

March 16, 2019


Cinderella is a full-length classic set to Prokofiev’s score that’s sure to delight the entire family with its charming tale of magic and love.  After a visit from her Fairy Godmother, our heroine is whisked off to the royal ball for an enchanting evening where she meets a handsome Prince and her life changes forever.

From silly stepsisters to sparkling fairies, Cinderella’s cast of characters includes local children alongside 30 professional artists from across the U.S. and around the world. This new Cinderella production is created in collaboration with Pedro Szalay of Southwest Virginia Ballet and is made possible by our Diamond Level sponsors and the Joseph and Robert Cornell Memorial Foundation.
