Apr 16, 2002 4:34 AM

The highly honored and widely acclaimed Tchaikovsky Perm Ballet Theatre will make a limited appearance in Las Vegas on Tuesday and Wednesday when they perform Prokofiev’s Cinderella at the Aladdin Theatre for the Performing Arts. Performances are at 8 p.m. and doors open at 7 p.m. Tickets are $35 for adults and $20 for children under 13. Tickets are available at all Ticketmaster outlets and at the Aladdin Box Office (702) 474-4000.

The troupe consists of 125 dancers and performers accompanied by a full symphony orchestra. They have toured the world receiving accolades from Ireland, Austria, Switzerland and Japan, among others. They come to Las Vegas directly from Russia.

The ballet company first performed in 1926 and is considered one of the top three dance ensembles in Russia.

Their repertoire originally concentrated on the works of Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky, but over the years has grown to include a vast array of classical composers ranging from Chopin to Grieg. A good example of their diversity is the performance of Prokofiev’s Cinderella.
