“Cinderella Samba” comes to the parks in the Bronx on May 4 and May 5.

This contemporary twist on the classic “Cinderella” fairy tale is presented by The CityParks Puppet Mobile and sets the timeless tale in the lush landscape of Brazil where, thanks to the help of her fairy godmother, Cinderella attends Rio de Janeiro’s biggest Carnaval gala and dances the samba with Prince Paulo himself.

When Cinderella is forced to flee the gala just before midnight, the prince sets out to find the mystery woman who stole his heart, in hopes of marrying her. The production features an original commissioned musical soundtrack that brings samba center-stage; handcrafted Carnaval festival floats on parade; and one-of-a-kind marionettes donning their most vibrant Carnaval costumes, created by the expert puppeteers from the Swedish Cottage Marionette Theatre in Central Park.

“Cinderella Samba” performances are free and open to all ages.

May 4; 10 am to 11 am at PS 72 [2951 Dewey Avenue; in Throggs Neck]

May 5; 9 am to 10 am at Slattery Playground [ E. 183rd St. and Valentine Avenue in University Heights]
