Hall-Musco Conservatory of Music in the College of Performing Arts
In the words of Jules Massenet, we invite you to "to escape from dark realities and to believe in the fabulous." This delightful and humorous retelling of the classic rags-to-riches folk tale will surely enchant you! It's the story of a young woman who has, until now, only been allowed to shine from behind the scenes. Set in 1950s L.A., Cinderella enlists the help of her glamorous fairy godmother to receive a true Hollywood makeover and attend the Pantages’ Ball, filled with celebrities, opportunist stepsisters, and a real, live prince!
Sung in English, with a live orchestra.
