We are so excited for the US premiere of Christopher Wheeldon’s new production of Cinderella by the San Francisco Ballet! The production is inspired by the Brothers Grimm and Perrault fairy tales, and is being performed along with the Dutch National Ballet. Although it's a classic story, don't start thinking it will be a traditional performance - this production will be dramatic, magical, and just a touch dark.

Artistic director Graham Lustig is making huge strides toward restoring Oakland Ballet Company to its former glory. A key component in this cunning plot is the lineup for the spring program, including works from two awesome local choreographers, Amy Seiwert and Sonya Delwaide, and two of Lustig’s own pieces.  

Winner of the 2011 Isadora Duncan award, Sonya Delwaide’s world premiere is an irreverent ballet set to Mozart’s music for the glass harmonica.
