Ballet Philippines and Alice Reyes presents Cinderella

Experience Grimm's fairy tale Cinderella in another telling through Ballet Philippines' performance through the music of Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky. Ballet Philippines gives Cinderella a fifth restaging and 33rd anniversary tribute to the well-loved ballet musical.

"What we, at Ballet Philippines, would hope for is that our re-telling of the treasured children's story of ‘Cinderella’ will fill the hearts of all in the audience with child-like joy and wonder and an early sprinkling of holiday cheer for the coming Christmas season," says Alice Reyes, who was named National Artist for Dance earlier this year. Reyes is also Ballet Philippines’ founder and Artistic Director Emeritus.
The role of Cinderella will be played by Soloist Denise Parungao and Junior Company Member Monica Amanda Gana. This is Gana's first lead role with Ballet Philippines, while Parungao was last seen in the title role of Ballet Philippines’ “Giselle” in 2013 and 2014. Playing opposite them as Prince Charming are Principal Dancers Jean Marc Cordero and Richardson Yadao.

Madame Isabelle Garachon, wife of the French Ambassador to the Philippines and former professional dancer, will be playing the role of Cinderella's wicked stepmother, alternating with Ballet Philippines President Margie Moran Floirendo.

For all kids and kids at heart, Cinderella will be shown from November 28 to December 7 at Tanghalang Nicanor Abelardo in CCP.
