Cinderella RCB

Ballet by Royal Classical Ballet

The premiere of the ballet “Cinderella” by S. Prokofiev based on the fairy tale of the same name by Charles Perrault took place on November 21, 1945 on the stage of the Bolshoi Theater. This is a performance about the victory of childish, naive purity, submissive to circumstances, over the deceit, malice, and greed of the surrounding society. The meekness and kindness of the poor stepdaughter deserved the highest reward. The artists will help the viewer to believe, at least for a moment, that this is possible. The magical dance of fairies, the funny absurdity of the sisters and stepmother, the unusually beautiful romantic duets of Cinderella and the prince – the performance will lift the spirits of both adults and children.
