State Street Ballet goes on tour for two months every season, bringing original dance and education programs to theaters and schools around the world. With standing ovations from China to Chile, and a 90% rebooking rate, we are very proud of our past touring successes and we look forward to bringing our work to all communities, large and small.
The world's most beloved fairy-tale comes to life through music, dance, and theatrical magic! State Street Ballet’s Cinderella features original choreography by Founder and Artistic Director Rodney Gustafson with additional choreography by Marina Fliagina, set design by Jean-Francois Revon, and costuming by A. Christina Giannini.
After its very successful premiere in Santa Barbara in 2005, Cinderella was selected to tour the Eastern United States (from New Hampshire to Florida) and sold out every performance. Part of its appeal is the incredible melding of visual backdrops, movement and sound. Digital animation projected onto a see-through scrim is used to help a pumpkin transform into a carriage, while the lead dancer visible behind the scrim changes from her costume of rags to the princess dressed for a ball.
Cinderella appeals to audiences of all ages and levels of ballet-knowledge, and can also include numerous local dance students in children's roles while we are on tour. It’s the perfect combination of a well-loved tale brought to life with unexpected twists and turns that will please young audience members, and classical dance that will satisfy ballet aficionados. Outreach and education opportunities are available, including in-theatre lecture demonstrations for students from the elementary level through high school.
