Cinderella, North Carolina Dance Theatre's current offering, allows this dynamic company to show off its collective talents in a major production.
On top of the always amazing dancing, add in wonderful production values with beautiful costumes by A. Christina Giannini, set design by Alain Vaes and original lighting by Nate McGaha. And they all come together with the help of the talented production team led by Edna Mae Berkey. And of course the choreography and leadership of Jean-Pierre Bonnefoux.
This is a visually gorgeous production that incorporates humor along with elegance and grace.
The show runs through March 16th at the Knight Theater.
