Joffrey Cinderella ball

The Joffrey Ballet’s “Cinderella” is Fantabulous!

**** Highly Recommended **** I don’t often get the opportunity to review a ballet, so I was delighted to get an invitation to the Joffrey Ballet’s “Cinderella”.  “Cinderella” was originally choreographed in 1948 by Sir Frederick Ashton for the Sadler’s Wells Ballet in London to a Prokofiev score written for the Bolshoi Ballet.  “Cinderella” is filled with complicated choreography, fantabulous leaps, flawless technique and timing.  I give “Cinderella” 4 Spotlights.

The Joffrey Ballet’s “Cinderella” runs through May 22nd at the Auditorium Theatre of Roosevelt University, 50 East Congress Parkway, Chicago.  Running time for this three act ballet is 2 hours, 15 minutes, with one full intermission and a short interval.  Performances are Thursday and Friday at 7:30 pm; Saturday at 2:00 and 7:30 pm; and Sunday at 2:00 pm.  Tickets range from $32-$170.  The best parking option I’ve found is the Park 1 lot on the corner of Wabash and Van Buren, for $13.  FYI The Joffrey Ballet Box Office, 10 E.
