On April 8 from 6-8pm, Saks Fifth Avenue San Francisco hosted an official launch party to celebrate the U.S. premiere of Wheeldon’s Cinderella. The Cinderella-themed décor at the ball featured a special Giambattista Valli Haute Couture Collection No. 4, by Giambattista Valli.

This must-see dance event of the season is presented by the San Francisco Ballet. The U.S. premiere of Christopher Wheeldon’s magical new production of Cinderella! Inspired by the Brothers Grimm and Perrault fairy tales, this wildly imaginative co-production with Dutch National Ballet features something for everyone: dramatic music by Prokofiev, spectacular sets and costumes by Julian Crouch (renowned for his designs for Metropolitan Opera and the Broadway musical The Addams Family), and ingenious puppetry by Obie Award winner Basil Twist. Showing from May 3-12.

Approximate running time for Cinderella is: 2 hours and 33 minutes
