The Russian National Ballet brings “Cinderella,” with music by Sergei Prokofiev, to the RiverCenter’s Bill Heard Theatre at 7:30 p.m. Saturday.
You know the story -- an orphaned young girl who is a serving maid to her stepmother and stepsisters, meets her fair godmother. The fairy godmother dresses her in a beautiful gown and gives her everything she needs to go to the grand ball.
The grand ball is held so the prince can meet his future bride. Cinderella can have all the fun she wants but has to leave the ball before midnight.
On the way out of the palace, she leaves her slipper behind. The prince, who is entranced by the young woman, searches for the woman who can fit in the slipper. He finds her at her stepmother’s house and they live happily ever after.
Tickets are $10-$39; call 706-256-3612.
