Thursday, March 10, at 8:00 p.m. New Jersey Performing Arts Center (NJPAC) presents an evening with Cinderella performed by the Russian National Ballet Theatre. The NJPA, located in downtown Newark is among the largest performing arts centers in the United States and is the artistic, cultural, educational and civic center of New Jersey -- where great performances and events enhance and transform lives every day.

A company of 50 superb dancers performs one of the most enchanting tales of everlasting love, featuring a sprightly score by Prokofiev, lush scenery and colorful costumes.

A rags-to-riches story about wishes that do come true, this classic ballet is directed by former Bolshoi ballerina Elena Radchenko in the grand tradition of Russian dance. This timeless ballet is sure to dazzle audiences of all ages with its magic, beauty and romance.

As dedicated to the classics like Swan Lake, Sleeping Beauty, The Nutcracker, Sylvia and Don Quixote as the Russian Ballet Theatre may be, Excite insists that the company is equally interested in promoting the evolution of dance as an art form:

"The company's primary principle is to not just carefully preserve the long-esteemed classical Russian ballet school; it also aims at developing new choreographic forms while alongside unveiling new directions, models and possibilities for dance."

To get your tickets to the Russian National Ballet Theatre's performance of Cinderella at the NJPAC March 10, be sure to check out the venue's official website or head on over to Ticket Master before it is too late.
