VSU, Valdosta School of Ballet Present Cinderella Jan. 28-29

VALDOSTA — Back by popular demand, the Valdosta School of Ballet, in partnership with Valdosta State University Theatre and Dance, will present Cinderella Jan. 28-29 on the Mathis City Auditorium stage.

A ballet composed by Sergei Prokofiev to a scenario by Nikolai Volkov, Cinderella is a variation of the original rags-to-riches tale. It was completed in 1945, premiered at the Bolshoi Theatre in November of that year, and is notable for its exuberant music, elaborate scenery, and, of course, the pair of less-than-lovely stepsisters.  

Performances are scheduled for 7:30 p.m. Saturday, Jan. 28, and 3 p.m. Sunday, Jan. 29. Tickets are available at the door and are $12 for adults and $10 for children.

Proceeds from the classic ballet will benefit Valdosta State University’s Golden Circle Scholarship and Support Fund for outstanding students studying theatre and dance.
