RUSSIAN NATIONAL BALLET'S CINDERELLA
The Russian National Ballet comes to the Saenger Theatre with their performance of Cinderella, a full-length ballet in three acts replete with beautiful costumes, grand scenery, elegant dancers and the famous glass slipper. The music is by Sergeo Prokofiev and choreography by Rostislav Zahharov.
The Russian National Ballet Theatre was founded in Moscow during the transitional period of Perestroika in the late 1980s, when many of the great dancers and choreographers of the Soviet Union's ballet institutions were exercising their new-found creative freedom by starting new, vibrant companies dedicated not only to the timeless tradition of classical Russian Ballet but to invigorate this tradition as the Russians began to accept new developments in the dance from around the world.
The company, then titled the Soviet National Ballet, was founded by and incorporated graduates from the great Russian choreographic schools of Moscow, St. Petersburg and Perm. The principal dancers of the company came from the upper ranks of the great ballet companies and academies of Russia, and the companies of Riga, Kiev and even Warsaw. Today, the Russian National Ballet Theatre is its own institution, with over 50 dancers of singular instruction and vast experience, many of whom have been with the company since its inception.
Tickets are on sale for the Russian National Ballet's performance of Cinderella on Wednesday, February 25 at 8 p.m. Tickets for this outstanding ballet are $50 and $40 plus applicable service charge. Discounts are available for military members at the Saenger Theatre Box office and group discounts are available for groups of 10 or more.

"LAST NIGHT OF BALLYHOO"
Last Night of Ballyhoo takes place in Atlanta, Georgia, in December of 1939. Gone with the Wind is having its world premiere, and Hitler is invading Poland, but Atlanta's elitist German Jews are much more concerned with who is going to Ballyhoo, the social event of the season. Events take several unexpected turns as the characters face where they come from and are forced to deal with who they really are today.
The PLT Mainstage Production of Last Night of Ballyhoo comes to the Valerie J. Russenberger Theatre with performances running January 30, 31 and February 1 & 3-5.
