CINDERELLA

Booking Period 15 - 16 August 2014

Alexei Ratmansky was just beginning his career as a choreographer when the Mariinsky Ballet commissioned a full-length narrative ballet from him in 2002. The premiere of Cinderella on 5 March 2002 launched Ratmansky onto the world stage. In Cinderella Ratmansky weaves together a magnificent array of different styles, interpreted through virtuoso classical language. The result is a fresh, witty and sardonic account of the classic fairytale, and a brilliant response to the bittersweet elements of Prokofiev's much-loved score.

The contemporary edge of Ratmansky's choreography is confirmed by spectacular designs from Ilya Utkin and Yeveny Monakhov (sets) and Elena Markovskaya (costumes). Together with Ratmansky they create a world where Cinderella, originally created on Diana Vishneva, becomes a lonely dreamer and her stepmother a vicious, tantrum-prone social climber. Ratmansky's innovative choreography - lyrical and grotesque, fantastical and wry - builds to a pas de deux of aching beauty and tenderness between Cinderella and her Prince.

Perhaps even the Panto of the Century, Graeme :) I know it will shock some, surprise many, amaze most, and give laughter to all.
