The Children’s Ballet of San Antonio (CBSA) invites you to a magical ball you don’t want to miss! The company will bring to life the classic Cinderella, the timeless love story, complete with a wicked stepmother, clumsy stepsisters, a fairy-godmother, and of course a handsome prince. Experience an enchanting performance for the whole family with opulent costumes, dreamlike digital and physical scenery and award-winning performers and choreographers, all set to the soaring score by Sergei Prokofiev. Taking place at the stunning Majestic Theatre on May 10 and 11, Cinderella is a dream come true that is sure to awaken child-like wonder in all ages.


Experience an Enchanting Performance


A talented cast of roughly 200 young CBSA artists, ages 3-19, present this romantic fairy tale as only the Children’s Ballet can. The audience will be swept away by original Disney ballads such as “So This is Love” performed through stunning ballet artistry and incredible vocal talent transforming Cinderella into an avant-garde fairy tale classic. Classical ballet combined with an eclectic mix of awe-inspiring aerial acrobatics, hip-hop, and gymnastics create an exciting 90-minute production that will transfix even the youngest audience members. The classic story follows Cinderella, a poor young woman mistreated by her stepmother and stepsisters. Her luck seems to change when a fairy godmother transforms her rags into finery and a pumpkin into a carriage to take her to the Prince’s ball in style. She easily captures the Prince’s attention, but will she be able to slip away before the magic wears off? Yet the Prince is already enraptured and goes on a devoted quest to find and marry the woman who can fit into the dainty glass slipper Cinderella left behind at the ball.

As part of CBSA’s commitment to provide young performers the chance to perform and train with the best of the best, the cast will be joined by two of CBSA’s newest ballet masters, principal artists Aliaksandra Krukava and Nurlan Kinerbayev, both Vaganova trained-teachers and renowned dancers who have performed and toured with numerous companies throughout Europe and the United States.
