Two of six ballets composed by Sergei Prokofiev have become big hits: Romeo and Juliet based on the Shakespearean tragedy and Cinderella with the libretto based on the fairytale by Charles Perrault. While the music for Romeo and Juliet bears the weight of tragedy, Cinderella is entirely in the spirit of a fairytale dream of a girl who finds her prince. The dance interpretation of the story is demanding with a broad register of expression layers. The ballet of the JK Tyl Theatre can rely on the company’s long-term experience with performing great ballet works. The tale of Cinderella will certainly appeal to young viewers and in addition, it will offer a moment of romantic reverie to adults.
Premiere on 16 November 2013 at the Grand Theatre.
