Royal Moscow Ballet’s Cinderella features Sergei Prokofiev’s classic score, choreography by Anatolie Emelianov and uses enchanting sets created by Valentin Federov. Unique to the Royal Moscow Ballet’s production is Federov’s larger-than-life puppet ‘Baba Yaga,’ an evil mythological character found in the Russian Cinderella story Vasilisa the Brave.
Cinderella is a beautiful fairytale about love, fortunate fate and the triumph of good over evil. This fairytale has been performed in theatres across the world under various names: The Crystal Slipper, The Magic Slipper, The Squirrel Fur Slipper, Cendrillion as well as Cinderella. Over the years, the poetic charm of the Cinderella tale has captivated the imagination of directors and composers. Music of this ballet was written by Russian composer Sergei Prokofiev immediately after World War II and is as enchanting, tender and fragile as Cinderella herself.
This ballet will take place on 17th May at the Mediterranean Conference Centre in Valletta and is an event to be enjoyed by the whole family!
