Ballet Manila debuts an original production of favorite children’s classic “Cinderella.”


“Modern, witty, romantic, very funny, but still every bit magical. It’s ‘Cinderella’ as you’ve never seen it before,” says prima ballerina and Ballet Manila directress Lisa Macuja-Elizalde.


Slated on Dec. 3, 8 p.m., and Dec. 4, 3 p.m., at the Aliw Theater, the ballet is Macuja-Elizalde’s first major choreographic work for the stage.


The production also includes magical moments like Cinderella’s transformation (which required Ballet Manila to tap international live special effects experts) and the Spring Ball, which, according to Macuja-Elizalde, will be “everything a royal ball should be.”


“Cinderella” is co-presented by the Manila Broadcasting Company, Star City and Aliw Theater.
