Cinderella in Ballet Slippers

Experience a new approach to the tale of Cinderella, in dance Thursday at the Civic Center.


Des Moines Performing Arts continues to wow with its Dance Series, and the Malandain Ballet Biarritz promises to be no exception. Twenty-two dancers will perform “Cinderella” Thursday, Feb. 13, at the Des Moines Civic Center. The company, which is based in southern France, claims its version of the fairy tale will be “unlike any other you have seen.” We don’t doubt it, as artistic director Thierry Malandain is known for an approach that’s rooted in classical ballet but has a contemporary style.

The performance begins at 7:30 p.m. Tickets start at $16, available through dmpa.org or at the Civic Center.
