‘Cinderella’ set to take the stage at Wagner NoëlShow features guest dancers, UTPB Philharmonic

You know the classic tale of the girl who goes from rags to riches and marries the prince but loses her glass slipper.
That’s OK because the prince fetches that shoe and all is well in fairytale land.
See it all unfold as the Midland Festival Ballet takes on “Cinderella.”
Tom Pazik’s choreography brings this full-length version of the ballet to life with humor, grace, and a happily-ever-after ending. The UTPB University Philharmonic conducted by Thomas Hohstadt will accompany the ballet with music composed by Sergei Prokofiev.
Featured artists will include Katia Carranza of Miami City Ballet and Ballet de Monterrey as Cinderella and Eduardo Pi as the Prince. Additional guest artists include dancers from Ballet San Antonio and the USC Glorya Kaufman School of Dance, among others.
Susan Clark, artistic director of Midland Festival Ballet, will be staging Tom Pazik’s ballet, “Cinderella,” with more than 30 local dancers and nine professional guest artists including Midland Festival Ballet Company members and School of Midland Festival Ballet students.
“Cinderella” is scheduled at 2:30 Sunday at the Wagner Noël Performing Arts Center. The FMH Foundation is underwriting this performance along with additional support from the Arts Council of Midland, Rea Charitable Trust, and Texas Commission on the Arts.
