Upcoming Performances


New Bedford Ballet once again brings magic to the Zeiterion Theatre stage with their performance of Cinderella on June 10th at 2:00 and 8:00Set to the music of Sergei Prokofiev and the choreography of artistic director Rebecca Waskiel-Marchesseault, along with ballet instructors James Brown and Eugenia Zinovieva, dancers of all ages will bring the timeless rags-to-riches fairytale to life in celebration of New Bedford Ballet’s 30th anniversary.  

Dartmouth High School senior Victoria Cameron captures Cinderella’s graceful, light-hearted kindness, while Old Rochester Regional High School senior Camryn McNamara entertains as the evil stepmother, provoking the cruel but comedic antics of the stepsisters, danced by high school juniors Caroline Mello and Ari Sweet.  Guest artist Alex Lantz, company dancer with Festival Ballet Providence, enchants the audience with the strength, agility, and dramatic flair of Prince Charming, bringing professionalism and technical precision to the stage.  In addition, colorful sets and charming costumes light the theatre with magical moments, complete with a whimsical pumpkin carriage, a glamorous royal ball, and the dramatic striking of the dreaded midnight hour.  

This performance pays homage to Charles Perrault’s original fairy tale, capturing the message that kindness, humility, and hope are what matter most.  Through the beauty of dance and magic of theatre, New Bedford Ballet casts this beloved story’s spell, bringing wonder and nostalgia to all ages.
