Heartland Ballet's Cinderella

  • The Grand Opera House 135 West 8th Street Dubuque, IA, 52001 United States (map)

Dubuque City Youth Ballet’s pre-professional company, Heartland Ballet, brings the popular fairytale to life. The glorious music of Sergei Prokofiev’s Cinderella is notable for its jubilant music, and the ballet is filled with lush scenery, a romantic story and comic stepsisters. The enduring rags-to-princess story offers the promise of "happily ever after" with a dose of humor mixed with the majesty of classical ballet. Experience the beauty of Cinderella, the Fairy Godmother, a handsome prince, a gorgeous ball gown, and the perfect dance party. Considered to be one of the top ten ballets of all time, Heartland Ballet’s exquisite production is sure to enchant audiences of all ages.

This Heartland Ballet production of Cinderella is choreographed by Megan MacLeod, Artist-in-Residence, and principal instructor at the Academy of Ballet, home of the Dubuque City Youth Ballet organization. Artistic Director is Marina O'Rourke. Featured dancers include Caroline Woodward as Cinderella, Cathleen Breslin as Bluebird, Julia Chavez as FairyGodmother, Elizabeth Kelsey and Carly Heying as the Stepsisters and Craig Allen as the Prince.

The Heartland Ballet is a division of the Dubuque City Youth Ballet. Consisting of advanced dancers, primarily of high school age, this company performs annually in the Spring. Ballets are from the DCYB repertoire. The Heartland Ballet also serves as a touring group, and for special commissions.
