A review of Pacific Northwest Ballet's "Cinderella" by Philippa Kiraly for Bachtrack.

Quote

The ballroom scene is another standout, largely due to the brilliant scarlet costumes of all the guests swirling around to Prokofiev’s waltz, with Cinderella, a vision in white, arriving in a horse-drawn coach escorted by several formally dressed children. The stepsisters cavort and pursue the Prince enthusiastically, thwarted each time by the Jester. Benjamin Griffiths danced him brilliantly with energy and split-second timing, both as interference for the Prince and in his own exuberant performance. As the Prince, Seth Orza acted well as he managed to avoid the two sisters and danced as splendidly as he always does.

Moscow City Ballet brings "The Sleeping Beauty" to Ireland.

“It’s what made me want to become a ballerina,” says Rachel Victoria Hernon, principal dancer with Moscow City Ballet. “It was the Royal Ballet’s production I saw on TV when I was a very young girl, with a very petite Italian ballerina dancing the lead. Her very first entrance as Aurora made me want to be there on stage, so it’s a ballet that means absolutely everything to me. That first entrance when she comes to life, she’s so dainty and sprightly. And the music is just incredible.”
