Yes. In fact she danced both the Cinderella and the Fairy Godmother roles.
She was the Fairy Godmother on opening night (didn't see that particular performance) and in two subsequent performances, and she was fabulous! There's one bit during the end of Act 1 when she moves, in fast tempo, across stage on a diagonal, then stops on a dime in a penche arabesque en pointe (pointing her wand downward). Her control was amazing.
She was equally exciting as Cinderella -- just a joy to watch. I loved her spunk and energy in that role, (which must be very physically demanding). We were sitting close that night and her chemistry with prince Michael Levine made for some tender moments in Acts 2 and 3.
