New York Theatre Ballet preforms “Cinderella.”

Tickets are $36; $31 for children. Shows will be performed March 13-14 at 11 a.m., 1 and 3:30 p.m. at Florence Gould Hall, 55 East 59th Street (between Madison and Park avenues), Manhattan.For more, visit www.nytb.org or call 212-355-6160.

Danced with humor and panache, NYTB’s Cinderella is an ideal way to introduce children to ballet. An additional bonus this year will be a five-minute talk by Artistic Director Diana Byer that will take the audience “behind-the-scenes” to show how important lighting is to a performance.

Discount packages for three “Once Upon a Ballet” shows — Cinderella, Carnival of the Animals & The Firebird (April), and Sleeping Beauty (May) — are also available for $72 per child and $96 per adult.
