(Boston) – The Howard Gotlieb Archival Research Center invites you to attend Dance Spotlight, a behind-the-scenes sneak preview of James Kudelka’s “Cinderella,” an upcoming production of the Boston Ballet, with Ballet Master Anthony Randazzo and company dancers. The event will be held on Wednesday, Sept. 28th at 6 p.m. in the Metcalf Ballroom of the George Sherman Union at 775 Commonwealth Avenue and will feature performances from Kudelka’s innovative production, set in the twenties, and a discussion period with dancers and ballet staff. In addition, there will also be a guided tour of some of the visually stunning Art-Deco costumes with Charles Heightchew, manager of costumes and wardrobe.

Kudelka’s fresh take on “Cinderella” has been highly acclaimed internationally and its run at the Boston Ballet will be its United States premiere. The exquisite set and costumes, designed by David Boechler, were inspired by the work of Russian painter Erte, whose name is synonymous with the glamour of the Art Deco period.

Dance Spotlight is free to the Boston University community. For further information, please contact the Howard Gotlieb Archival Research Center at 617-353-3696 or visit
