Philadelphia Ballet is pleased to announce the opening of its 2022/2023 performance season with Ben Stevenson’s Cinderella, the treasured family classic that has captivated audiences of all ages. Cinderella will begin the company’s new season on October 13, running 10 performances only at the Academy of Music, through October 23.

“It is a delight to embark on our new season with one of the most beloved and classic family stories, which is sure to capture the imagination of ballet lovers of all ages,” said Angel Corella, The Ruth & A. Morris Williams, Jr. Artistic Director. “We hope our audiences will join us for a production full of magic, romance, and breathtaking dance as the company returns to the stage this October.”
Set to Sergei Prokofiev’s passionate and expansive score, Ben Stevenson’s version of Cinderella has captivated audiences with its emotionally compelling portrayal of this cherished ballet. Cinderella follows its heroine’s journey as she falls in love with a handsome prince, overcomes the influences of her wicked stepfamily, and makes her own dreams come true.
Beloved by generations, this is a story where wishes come true, courage triumphs over cruelty, and a lost slipper leads to a happily ever after.
“It is always a thrill to inaugurate a new performance season, and it is hard to imagine a more fitting opening than Cinderella, a ballet that continues to delight audiences young and old with its heartwarming story and enchanting choreography,” said Shelly Power, The Dr. Carolyn
Newsom Executive Director. “This grand and sweeping production is also the perfect way to introduce our newly-expanded Company of 50 dancers to our audiences. Whether you know the tale by heart or are experiencing it for the very first time, Cinderella offers something for everyone to treasure.”
The Philadelphia Ballet production of Ben Stevenson’s Cinderella is made possible by Independence Blue Cross.
