Cinderella soars to top of must-see productions

-A A +A

From its breathtaking opening solo to its exquisite grand finale - Susan Baker Dillingham’s creative genius takes the classic “Cinderella” tale to amazing new heights.

“The dancing was incredible … I couldn’t believe how beautiful the costumes were … and the lighting and the music were absolutely spectacular,” an audience member said as the final curtain drew closed Friday night. “I didn’t want it to end, I wanted the dancers to immediately start the show over again,” said another audience member at Duane Smith Auditorium.

It really doesn’t get better than that – and no wonder they feel that way – Baker Dillingham’s 2009 “Cinderella” will undoubtedly go down in local history as one of the community’s most celebrated productions.

One opportunity  remains to experience this remarkable ballet performance at 2 p.m. today. Tickets, which cost $12 for general admission, $8 for seniors and students, and children age four and younger are free, are available at the door.

Baker Dillingham’s brilliant casting came from the talented members of her New Mexico Dance Theater. “It’s so exciting … all my training has led to this” said the star of the production, Larissa Fortson.
