Our Metro Moms team has acquired two tickets for one lucky winner to enjoy “Cinderella,” by the New York Theatre Ballet for November 12 or 13.  Performance times both days are 11:00 am, 1:00 pm and 3:30 pm.  The winner will get to select their performance date and time.

Cinderella will be performed at Florence Gould Hall (55 East 59th Street) in Manhattan.  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).

In case you don’t win our giveaway, tickets are $31 for children and $36 for adults. Group rates and special subscription prices are available. To purchase tickets for Florence Gould Hall, please visit www.nytb.org or Ticketmaster.com or call Ticketmaster at 1.800.982.2787.

  1. My daughter loves the costumes

  2. My daughter loves music, ballet movements, and story. Cinderella is one of her favorite books, so she would really enjoy to see all characters come alive.

  3. I go to the ballet a few times a year. I went a month or so ago and my son was really jealous. He is 3. My son did not know what the ballet was but he did know that Mommy & Cousin Kathy were going somewhere without him. He kept saying that he wanted to go to the ballet so I showed him some clips from Petruska, the Nutcracker, etc. He loved it. He loved the music, the movement, the costumes! I bought him tickets for the Nutcracker in December. He is a huge fan and I can’t wait to share my love of ballet with him.

  4. My 5-year-old daughter loves all things ballet.. Since she is still in her princess stage this would be a perfect treat for her to see. She’s in her 3rd year of ballet class, loved the local production of the Nutcracker last year, performed in her dance school’s performance of Romeo and Juliet last spring, danced on the stage with her friends at the end of the Angelina Ballerina show and would flip to see this New York Theatre’s Cinderella.

  5. My daughter’s favorite part of ballet: the coming together of the music and the movement.

  6. I have never taken my daughter to see professional ballerinas. She has taken ballet class and thought it was “boring” and too “structured.” I would love the opportunity to show prove her wrong and broaden her horizons.

  7. my daughter is currently in rehearsals for nutcracker and is sooo delighted to be performing alongside ‘big girl’ ballerinas and says she wants to be just like them. i would love to bring her to her first ballet theater experience right before she performs her own (dec 17th).

  8. Follow columnist Kathy Zucker TODAY 11/9 at http://twitter.com/kathyzucker as she takes her toddlers to their first ballet experience at the NY Theatre Ballet!
