From the fertile mind of Les Ballets de Monte-Carlo’s Jean-Christophe Maillot, Cendrillon strips the classic fairy tale of Cinderella of its sugar-coating and explores the untold story of Cinderella’s mother, a vision of lost happiness, who returns from the dead in the form of a fairy godmother. It is a poignant meditation on love and loss, in which the departed shape the future of those left behind. It is also a funny, incisive take on a society crammed full of artifice. The production has been designed by the same scenic, costume and lighting artists who fashioned Maillot’s Roméo et Juliette (scenic design by Ernest Pignon-Ernest; costume design by Jerome Kaplan; and lighting by Dominique Drillot), and features Sergei Prokofiev’s stirring score performed live by the PNB Orchestra.
