Cinderella ballet

Cinderella marked Alexei Ratmansky’s debut in the form of a multi-act drama. Prior to this, his productions had only included single-act performances and short stories. Ratmansky, unlike many of his predecessors who put on this ballet, offered the interpretation of Prokofiev’s ambitious musical score rather than the plot of the famous fairy tale. Putting aside the former caramel-sweet children’s fairy tales “about the right to happiness for everyone who has a kind heart”, he placed his heroine in an environment that is timeless, but shows signs of our current times, where the miracles are performed not by beautiful fairies, but by a no-nonsense beggar woman with a sack of oranges and an entourage of cocky punks. Together with Valery Gergiev, Ilya Utkin, Eugene Monakhov and Elena Markovskaya, Ratmansky managed to find room in the ironic ballet for the depth of Prokofiev’s masterpiece, his notes of anxiety, and zest for life with a postmodern airiness. He emerged as a choreographer in whose performance the audience laughs, while the actors, surrendering themselves to the nature of the game, reveal their own new faces and have a wonderful time fooling around.

Tickets for the concert can be purchased on the official website of the Mariinsky Theatre.
Participants must pay for the ticket out of pocket.
