State Street Ballet’s “Cinderella”

New Mexico Tech Performing Arts Series presents the perfect combination of a well-loved tale brought to life with unexpected twists and turns that will please young audience members, and classical dance that will satisfy ballet aficionados. The Cinderella ballet, completed by Sergei Prokofiev in 1945, is a variation of the original rags-to-riches story. After its very successful premiere in Santa Barbara, the ballet was selected to tour the Eastern U.S and sold out every performance. Part of its appeal is the incredible melding of visual backdrops, movement and sound. Digital animation projected onto a see-through curtain is used to help a pumpkin transform into a carriage, while the lead dancer visible behind the curtain changes from her costume of rags to the princess dressed for a ball.

Tickets: Free to NMT full-time students, pick up your ticket at the NMT bookstore or at the door. General admission: $22/Adult; 20$/Senior, 65 and over; $10/Youth, 17 and under. 7:30 p.m., Macey Center
