CCM Mainstage Dance: 'Cinderella'
Karen Russo Burke, guest choreographer
Michael Tevlin, ensemble director
Celebrate spring’s arrival with a fully staged fairytale ballet choreographed by guest artist Karen Russo Burke, Artisitc Director of the Dayton Ballet. A poor girl wishes to escape the authoritarian rule of her evil stepmother and stepsisters, so her fairy godmother gives her a ticket to the ball! The girl meets Prince Charming and they fall in love, but she vanishes when the clock strikes midnight. Set to music by Sergei Prokofiev, Cinderella is known for its jubilant melodies, lush scenery and graceful retelling of the timeless romance by Charles Perrault.
Cinderella will last 1 hour and 20 minutes, including a 15-minute intermission between Acts I and II and a 5-minute pause between Acts II and III.
Cinderella ... is among the most rewardingly rewatchable and relistenable ballets ever made.

CCM's streaming series continues with Spring Opera Gala concerts
June 21, 2021
The UC College-Conservatory of Music's virtual performance series continues with a pair of Spring Opera Gala concerts. Originally broadcast on June 17 and 18, both concerts are now available for on-demand viewing. Watch an excerpt from the second gala concert below. CCM's Spring Opera Gala is a double-cast production: the same repertoire is performed during both broadcasts, but each features a different cast of singers performing arias and duets from such classic Italian operas as Gaetano Donizetti’s L’Elisir d’Amore, Gioacchino Rossini’s Otello and Ruggero Leoncavallo’s Pagliacci. Each concert stream also begins with a spirited performance of the Overture to Rossini’s L’Italiana in Algeri by the CCM Philharmonia and concludes with a rousing rendition of the “Sola, sola in buio loco” sextet from Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart’s Don Giovanni.
