Ballet Manila presents Cinderella

The country’s premier classical dance company, Ballet Manila, marks another milestone this season as it debuts another original production—Cinderella.

“Modern, witty, romantic, very funny, but still every bit magical. It’s Cinderella as you’ve never seen before” – Lisa Macuja-Elizalde


A production that combines theatrical comedic elements, modern live special effects, and romantic classical scores, Ballet Manila’s version of Cinderella puts a lighter comical spin on the well-loved classic, whilst keeping intact all the elements that make it so magical.

Cinderella is the first major choreographic work of the country’s most celebrated prima ballerina. Audiences should also look forward to the many magical moments that Ballet Manila has infused in its production of Cinderella. Included in these scenes to watch out for is the transformation of Cinderella, which called for Ballet Manila to tap international live special effects specialists to create. There is also the Spring Ball, which according to Lisa, will be “everything a royal ball should be”.
