A perennial favorite of NYTB audiences across America, Cinderella is one-hour in length with choreography by Donald Mahler, costumes by Sylvia Taalson Nolan, set design by Gillian Bradshaw-Smith. New York Theatre Ballet last performed at the Inside/Out Stage at Jacob’s Pillow Dance Festival in July 2008.
“Gillian Bradshaw-Smith’s ingenious scenery included a clock that came alive and danced, and furniture that moved magically about. And Sylvia Taalsohn Nolan, the imaginative costume designer, created a gasp-producing moment when Cinderella’s attire changed miraculously from rags to the riches of a ball gown.” -The New York Timesnbsp;
During the week of their engagement, company members of NYTB will also teach a free, all-ages, all-levels ballet class to the Pillow public on Sunday, June 28. Limited space, call 413.243.9919 to register.
