Ballet Manila's Sinderela

Anonymous Filed Under:

Ballet Manila offers a modern take on the classic fairy tale Cinderella in its Christmas production, combining the elements of love, magic and dance in a fun and enchantment-filled package perfect for the holidays.

In Sinderela, the prince becomes matinee idol Al Principe who holds a search for his leading lady through a grand dance audition. With the help of her fairy godmother Tita Nia, Sinderela gets to show off her dancing skills which are far more refined than those of her wicked stepsisters. But at the stroke of midnight Sinderela hurriedly departs, leaving behind her slipper and an awestruck Al to figure out who its rightful owner is.

With libretto/story adaptation and choreography by Hazel Sabas-Gower, Sinderela will have its world premiere on November 30 at the Aliw Theater, CCP Complex, Pasay City. Shows are also scheduled on December 1, 2, 8 and 9.

Prima ballerina Lisa Macuja-Elizalde steps into Sinderela's slippers, with Jennifer Rose Olayvar and Sofia Sangco-Peralta as alternates. Taking on the role of Al Principe are Nazer Salgado, Romeo Peralta and Rudy de Dios. Hana Oh dances as Tita Nia, the beggar-woman who turns out to be a nature enchantress.

Using music by Sergei Prokofiev, Sinderela is based on the classic tale by Charles Perrault and the Grimm brothers. Libretto editor is Scott Gower, with set design by Katsch Catoy and costume design by PJ Aranador.

Featured in select performances are guest violinist Robert Atchison and pianist Olga Dudnik. Mylene Aggabao and Eileen Lopez are the restagers of Sonata.
