A favorite fairytale comes to life with crowd-pleasing contemporary choreography and music by Prokofiev. The vivid detail is captivating, from the stepsisters dancing lessons and Cinderella’s beautiful transformation, to the eerily staged ballroom scene and tolling of the midnight hour. As the magical encounters and plot twists of Cinderella unfold on stage, the charm of classical ballet cannot be denied.

This contemporary rep program is a highlight of State Street Ballet’s season. A production of short works that range from classical to experimental idioms, Other Voices showcases the talents of choreographers who push boundaries, redefining the art of dance.

“a powerful, eclectic evening”
- Santa Barbara Independent

The repertoire features pieces from audience favorites Laurie Eisenhower (choreographer of the company’s popular Bubbles) and Edgar Zendejas (one of the choreographers of the groundbreaking Chaplin production).

Niki Powell, a dancer with Santa Barbara Dance Theater, debuts new work, setting a piece on the ensemble for the first time. Internationally noted choreographer and dance educator Royce Zachary rounds out the talent mix in a sweeping panorama of innovation.

Expect a fun and thought-provoking evening.
