The Royal Winnipeg Ballet presents RWB: Val Caniparoli's A Cinderella Story

May 11 - May 15

Ballet meets Broadway in this inventive reinterpretation of the fairy tale favourite.

Inspired by the 1957 television musical, Val Caniparoli’s A Cinderella Story fuses classical ballet with jazz and tap to themes from Richard Rodgers’ songbook, arranged for a live jazz orchestra by Winnipeg’s own renowned bandleader Ron Paley. A delightfully retro 1950’s setting and high fashion costumes create the perfect backdrop for the season’s final mainstage performance.
