Excerpts from Cinderella

“Excerpts from Cinderella” continues an Island tradition on June 9 and June 10 with a springtime ballet full of hope and magic.  More than 40 Mercer Island ballet students will perform highlights from the classical story of a young girl who discovers her prince with the loving help of friendly forest creatures and a fairy godmother.

Set to the Sergei Prokofiev score, Island Youth Ballet’s Excerpts from Cinderella is a condensed version of the full length ballet, making it a delightful experience for all ages. Lavish costumes and theatrical detail will help set the scene for a magical journey with sewing mice, butterflies, and a grand ball.
