Who doesn’t love a good fairy tale, complete with a fairy godmother, a handsome prince, and a beautiful princess, all wrapped up in the beauty and grace of a classical ballet? The storybook favorite, Cinderella, is taking place at Symphony Hall in downtown Phoenix. Stunning music and costumes, remarkable staging, and a touch of humor add to the magic, making it a must-see ballet performance for all ages. Tickets start at $25 and performances are scheduled for Friday, November 1st, at 7:30 pm, Saturday, November 2nd, at 2:00 and 7:30 pm, and Sunday, November 3rd, at 1:00 and 5:30 pm. Ticket information can be found here. The address is 75 N. 2nd Street.
When taking in the symphony, why not enjoy dining in a fine restaurant or take in a light happy hour on the way. The Hyatt Regency is located directly across the street from Symphony Hall so is a favorite place for event-goers. For an elegant dinner, a city favorite is the Compass Room. The cuisine and service are enough to write home about, plus the stunning views are some of the best in the valley. Or, if the preference is more casual, sandwiches, and appetizers, the Hyatt also has the trendy Networks Grill that stays open late. For an evening to remember, the symphony and the Hyatt are two of the downtown’s best choices. The address is 122 N. 2nd Street.
