Item Number: 2201
Artist: Cinderella

The fairy tale of Cinderella is based on the story by the poet Charles Perrault and has been performed as a ballet for over 150 years. However, its enormous success came only after Sir Frederick Ashton, inspired by the wistful and imaginative Sergei Prokofiev score (written in 1945), choreographed Britain’s first full-length ballet.

 

In this DVD version, staged by the Berlin Comic Opera Ballet Company, the beautiful prima ballerina Hannelore Bey dances the role of Cinderella with tenderness, dignity and alluring grace, while Roland Gatwick creates an outstanding Prince. Staged and choreographed by Tom Schilling, the splendid décor and costumes enhance the ballet’s inventiveness, vision and fluidity while dancers perform to the music of a full orchestra conducted by Siegfried Kratzer.  Highlights include the ballroom Pas de Deux for Cinderella and her Prince, and the comic roles of her stepsisters and stepmother.

 

The world-acclaimed Berlin Comic Opera Ballet has a history spanning over 230 years. Adapting classical Russian technique, the Ballet Company has always felt a responsibility to make ballet accessible to the young by staging special performances as an introduction to the art of dance.
