Cinderella is without a doubt one of the most iconic fairytales of all time. The story has graced the screen and stage in many different forms, from movies to musicals. Now, at the Academy of Music, you can see the incomparable fantasy in a whole new way: as a ballet.

Cinderella is a rags-to-riches story of a young girl who is treated as a servant by her stepmother and stepsisters. Through hope, spirit, and belief in the impossible, she is able to win the heart of the handsome prince, all with a midnight curfew! With the help of her friends, magic, and her fairy godmother, she overcomes the mistreatment of her stepfamily and gets to live happily ever after with her Prince Charming. The classic story is told in a whole new way through dance, music, and lavish costumes that will captivate and enchant any theater lover or audience spectator.

Tickets are available for $10 at the Student Center Box Office. Student rush tickets are also available for $10 an hour before the performance starts. All you need is your TU ID!

Cinderella is hosted by the Pennsylvania Ballet and will be held at The Academy of Music in Center City from October 13th-23rd. Students can easily take the subway to either the City Hall station or the Walnut-Locust station. It is then a short walk to the Academy of Music.
