Commissioned by the Mariinsky in 2002, this Cinderella launched the international career of choreographer Alexei Ratmansky, who reinvigorates the classic story ballet with fresh sophistication. From quiet, shimmering romance to lively court dances, Ratmansky seamlessly echoes the complexities of Prokofiev’s score, juxtaposing angular modernism with the bittersweet emotion and drama of this sweeping fairy tale.
