Giveaway: NY Theatre Ballet Presents Cinderella and The Nutcracker

We are big fans of the New York Theatre Ballet.  Ever since my daughter started taking dance lessons, it has been a key part of our NYC experience every fall.
Cinderella for children opens on November 12 at Florence Gould Hall, NYC. Choreographed by Donald Mahler and set to music by Prokofiev, Cinderella is an ideal introduction to ballet for children ages 3-10, but also sophisticated enough for the most discerning parent to enjoy. With comical evil stepsisters and a clock that comes to life, the ballet is a delightful blend of charm and humor for the whole family. Cinderella features an enchanting set by Gillian Bradshaw-Smith and opulent costumes by Sylvia Nolan (Resident Costume Designer of the Metropolitan Opera).

Tickets are $31 for children and $36 for adults. Group rates and special subscription prices available. Perfect for parties or family outings! We hope you will list these performance below!
