The Pennsylvania Ballet will perform one of the most beloved princess fairytales this fall. Beginning on Oct. 13, there are eleven chances to experience the ballet "Cinderella" at the Academy of Music.

Ben Stevenson, a native of Portsmouth, England, who received his dance training at the Arts Educational School in London, is the choreographer of the production.

“He brings the drama and romance of Cinderella to life, interjecting comic relief along the way,” Janie Parker, one of Stevenson’s stage producers, shared in a press release.

You've probably seen the animated Disney classic and possibly last year's live-action remake, but this is a new way to view the princess story.

The performance times for "Cinderella" at the Academy of Music are:

•Thursday, Oct. 13 at 7:30 p.m.
•Friday, Oct. 14 at 7:30 p.m.
•Saturday, Oct. 15 at 2 p.m.
