Your kids have probably seen the movie Cinderella a million times, but Netflix has nothing on the magic and beauty of seeing it performed live.
Get ready to be enchanted by the likes of Cinderella and her Fairy Godmother, Clara and her Nutcracker and more with Oregon Ballet Theatre’s exclusive Family Package of three classic ballet shows. Watch as the stories of Cinderella, The Nutcracker and Napoli dance into your little ones’ hearts, with the thrill of dancers draped in gorgeous costumes backed by OBT’s full, live orchestra. Here’s what makes these shows a delight for every member of the family:
- When a simple Italian girl falls in love with a poor fisherman, nothing can stop the power of true love in the OBT’s production of Napoli (Oct. 6–13)—not even a magic spell cast by sea nymphs led by an evil sea spirit! The New York Times has called Napoli “an otherworldly romantic adventure.”
- It’s hardly the holiday season without taking your family to see The Nutcracker (Dec. 8–26). From sugarplum fairies pirouetting across the stage to the climactic battle with the mouse king, George Balanchine’s The Nutcracker® has been an OBT tradition for the past 15 years.
- Cinderella (Feb. 16–23, 2019) is practically everyone’s favorite fairytale. With more than 3,000 versions of the classic tale worldwide, none can come close to the beauty of watching the story told in dance, against the backdrop of Prokofiev’s lush score, no less.
Let the magic of live ballet sweep your kids off their feet.
