The National Ballet did not perform Cinderella again until May 11, 1995 when the company staged a new version choreographed by Ben Stevenson. This version was performed again in May of 2000. 

On May 8, 2004 a new production choreographed by James Kudelka had its world premiere at the Hummingbird Centre. The lead roles were performed by Sonia Rodriguez as Cinderella and Guillaume Côté as Her Prince Charming.
