Missouri Contemporary Ballet: Cinderella
Missouri Contemporary Ballet continues its 12th Season of performances to live music in a multi-layered collaboration of one of the classic stories for the ages. From glass slippers to pointe shoes, MCB revisits one of its cherished local friends by collaborating with the Odessy Chamber Music Series in this original production of Sergei Prokofiev’s Cinderella played on two pianos. With choreography from Artistic Director Karen Mareck Grundy and Resident Choreographer Fernando Rodriguez, Cinderella delights the senses and brings new life to a favorite storyline. The second half of this collaboration brings MCB’S friends from the Island Moving Company (Newport, RI) back to the stage in Columbia five years after their first performance here. Building on their work together at the Great Friends Dance Festival in Rhode Island last summer, MCB and IMC complement one another in a perfect fit!
