BALLET JÖRGEN'S CINDERELLA
Date:Sat, Mar 25th, 2023
This ballet by Bengt Jörgen is an innovative take on the classic fairy tale.
Jörgen’s choreography balances the fairy tale elements of the story with a contemporary treatment of Cinderella and her family relationships. Returning to the original Russian tradition of having women perform the roles of the stepsisters, Jörgen builds a more realistic and human look at Cinderella and her circumstances, and then uses these scenes to both counterpoint and highlight the magical aspects of the story.
Ballet Jörgen’s Cinderella is a classical ballet with modern, dramatic sensibilities.
“Not just a happily ever after. [Jörgen] elevates Cinderella’s story to one of female empowerment.” - Winnipeg Free Press
