This Saturday there’s a wonderful opportunity to watch some of the most talented young dancers in Orange County, in a truly unique performance of the tale of Cinderella. Orange County’s premier pre-professional ballet company brings the enchanting fairytale to the stage for an exclusive engagement at the Irvine Barclay Theatre (4242 Campus Drive, Irvine) for a one day engagement, Saturday, April 3, 2010
Featuring choreography by Mr. Charles Maple, the beloved “rags to riches” fairytale comes to life on stage as a feature length ballet. Romance, emotion and spirit abound in this stunning production that stars a cast of the Southland’s rising young ballet artists.
“Cinderella is a classic folk tale with thousands of variants. Its popularity is not only attributed to the romantic love story; more importantly, it conveys a meaningful message that beauty is a treasure, but graciousness is priceless,” said Mr. Maple.
The storyline includes the infamous wicked stepmother, trio of ugly and jealous stepsisters, the magical fairy godmother, Pumpkin carriage, and the charming Prince, who falls in love with Cinderella’s kindness, innocence and grace.
“What I wish to express above all with the choreography of Cinderella is the poetic love of Cinderella and the Prince, the birth and blossoming of that love, the obstacles in its path and finally, the dream fulfilled…. I wanted this to be about a young prince who finds the love of his life. It is about the innocence of adolescent love.”
“Cinderella” performs at the Irvine Barclay Theatre, Irvine (4242 Campus Drive, Irvine 92612) on Saturday, April 3 at 1:30pm and 6:30pm. Adult tickets $28; children and seniors $22. To purchase tickets or for more information, contact the Irvine Barclay Theatre box office at
