Metropolitan School of the Arts presents one of the most enchanting rags-to-riches storybook ballets, Cinderella. This is the endearing story of a young girl who keeps the words of her parents close to her heart; she remains faithful to being courageous and kind. Though cruelly mistreated, by her comically portrayed ugly sisters and stepmother, Cinderella remains virtuous. Watch the prince have his heart captured by this beautiful mysterious guest who dashes off at the stroke of midnight, leaving only her glass slipper behind. Purchase 10 or more tickets to a single show and receive a $2 discount per ticket.

“Our Cinderella ballet is the perfect spring performance for young and old…it brings the classic tale to life; both entertaining and heart-warming,” said Melissa Dobbs, founder and executive director of Metropolitan School of the Arts of Alexandria, Va.
