Staging of the celebrated work Cinderella proves how multifarious the choreographic plan of the National Theatre Ballet is. On this occasion it will be the charming version by Jean-Christophe Maillot, a leading French choreographer and artistic director of the renowned ballet company in Monte Carlo, where this production originated. The bewitching story of the kind and graceful Cinderella penned by the French writer Charles Perrault inspired the Russian composer Sergei Prokofiev to create a work of remarkable poignancy, replete with tenderness, melancholy, as well as magnificent dance scenes.
