Continuing to share all of the love we can gather, OBT unveils its first ever production of the beloved CINDERELLA. Get swept up in the romance of this timeless fairy tale when a handsome prince, a fairy godmother, one missing glass slipper – and a little magic – help make dreams come true for a very deserving young girl. Set to Prokofiev’s opulent score, Ben Stevenson’s colorful full-length version is one of the ballet world’s most popular.

OBT BLOG - Cinderella: An ancient tale brought to life

"[Ben] Stevenson’s Cinderella is a company premiere for OBT and will mark the first full-length story ballet that we have presented in four years. The production is enormous in scale with elaborate sets and fanciful costumes... The entire company, including students from the School of Oregon Ballet Theatre, will fill the 60 roles required of the ballet. (Keep an eye out for OBT’s Rehearsal Director Lisa Kipp as Cinderella’s Stepmother and Ballet Master Jeffrey Stanton as Cinderella’s father!) The dancers have spent 105 hours in the studio learning and rehearsing the ballet, and this week they move into the theatre for 30 final hours of rehearsal before Saturday’s much-anticipated opening night.."

PREVIEWS & REVIEWS

Oregonian Review: Oregon Ballet Theatre's 'Cinderella' offers spectacle, magical transformations, lush live music:

"...for sheer spectacle, it's hard to outdo Oregon Ballet Theatre's new production..."

"[Xuan Cheng as Cinderella] conveys the emotional shift from despair to excitement beautifully..."

"As the spring and summer fairies, Ansa Deguchi and Jessica Lind reflect innocence and youth. By constrast, the fall and winter fairies (Candace Bouchard and Eva Burton) are all about knowing and nuance. It's a great showcase for four of OBT's standout soloists and corp members."

"[Choreographer Ben Stevenson] gives the company a chance to waltz and gavotte [at the Prince's ball], creating a moment of joy in motion."

"OBT's orchestra, under the baton of music director Niel DePonte, shows why live music trumps a recording every time."

The Oregonian: Timeless story, humor give Oregon Ballet Theatre's 'Cinderella' a leg up on other adaptations

"'I think one of the main themes of Cinderella that resonates is virtue overlooked. It's about cultivating goodness, and eventually your virtues, even if they are not recognized immediately, will come out in the end. That's timeless,' [says Kevin Irving] ... 'That's why the story keeps resurfacing ... I'm so thrilled to introduce a new full-length ballet to Portland ... It's not that common an occurrence, and we think it's a special part of our mission.'"
