Paris Opera Ballet: Cinderella - Palace Opera & Ballet

Opening 22 June 2019
Not yet rated, 170 mins

Starring Étoiles, Premiers Danseurs 
and Corps de Ballet of the Paris Opera.

Charles Perrault’s celebrated tale, set to music by Sergei Prokofiev, is transposed to a film set. In a series of references to the heroes of the American cinema, Rudolf Nureyev propels his Cinderella under the spotlights of Hollywood. With a producer for fairy godmother and a star actor as Prince Charming, she escapes her miserable destiny and sees her dreams come true in a story not without similarities with that of the choreographer, the young Tartar who became an international star. With this “ballet-metaphor”, the Paris Opera Ballet pays tribute to Nureyev, its former director.
