Review: Springfield Ballet's 'Cinderella' includes modern overtones

On its surface, the story of "Cinderella" is an old-fashioned fairy tale: a woman freed from her circumstances by a handsome prince.
But there's also a more modern take lurking underneath: Like a lot of young women, it's only when Cinderella realizes the beauty that was within her all along that she will ever truly be free.
That theme of growth and discovery is apparent throughout the Springfield Ballet Company's production of "Cinderella," which opens a two-day run this afternoon in Sangamon Auditoriun, on the campus of the University of Illinois Springfield. (The State Journal-Register was invited to review the final dress rehearsal Friday night.)
