Coastal City Ballet brings the world premiere of Cinderella to Surrey this weekend.

An enduring and beloved tale, Irene Schneider’s Cinderella will showcase the diverse talents of the ballet company, with haunting by Sergei Prokofiev.

The full-length ballet, choreographed by Irene Schneider, follows the classic rags to riches tale of a young girl who finds love, happiness and her happily ever after through her acts of kindness.

Schneider is an independent choreographer who has created more than 60 ballets presented in numerous opera houses in Germany and throughout the world. After finishing her professional ballet career, primarily with Stuttgart Ballet, Schneider began teaching and choreographing.

Her career led her to Magdeburg Ballet where she was Artistic Director for 15 years. Irene Schneider’s first commission for Coastal City Ballet was in 2012, when she choreographed the world premiere ballet “Hansel and Gretel.”

Coastal City Ballet, led by Artistic Director Li Yaming, is based in Vancouver and provides performance opportunities for emerging dancers from Canada and around the world.

Cinderella takes place May 30, 4 p.m. at the Surrey Arts Centre, 13750 88 Ave.

Tickets are $30 for adults, $22 for students and seniors and $20 for children or groups of 10. Check tickets.surrey.ca or phone 604-501-5566.
