Paris Opera Ballet: Cinderella - Palace Opera & Ballet

Starring Étoiles, Premiers Danseurs 
and Corps de Ballet of the Paris Opera.
Classification: CTC, 170 mins.
Country: France.


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.

Captured live from Opéra Bastille, Paris, Dec 2018.
Choreography: Rudolf Nureyev.
Conductor: Vello Pähn.
Cast: Étoiles, Premiers Danseurs
 and Corps de Ballet of the Paris Opera. Duration: approx. 2h50, incl. interval.
