Cinderella, A Steam Punk Fairy Tale

Cinderella, or The Little Glass Slipper, is an Italian folk tale embodying a myth-element of unjust oppression. One of the most popular versions of Cinderella was written in French by Charles Perrault in 1697, under the name Cendrillon. The popularity of his tale was due to his additions to the story, including the pumpkin, the fairy-godmother and the introduction of glass slippers. [Wikipedia]

Different greatly from a more traditional approach to a production, "Cinderella, A Steam Punk Fairy Tale" ballet is based on  a 'steampunk' theme and a twist on the traditional storyline. On April 3 and 4, 2015, the new Cinderella ballet show had its world premiere at Kingsbury Hall of the University of Utah. With tickets being sold out, the unprecedented ballet performance caused a huge sensation. ('Steampunk' refers to a subgenre of science fiction and sometimes fantasy - also in recent years a fashion movement - that incorporates technology and aesthetic designs inspired by 19th-century industrial steam-powered machinery.)

The show represents a year long collaboration of 160 students and faculty artists from the Departments of Ballet, Art & Art History, Film & Media Arts, and the School of Music of the University of Utah.
