Cendrillon

Salle Wilfrid-Pelletier From May 31 To June 4, 2023

Be a child once again for the space of an evening and let yourself be carried away by the magic of Cinderella, the wonderful centuries-old fairy tale. Prokofiev’s famous score, completed in 1944 and inspired by the Perrault tale, has perpetually fascinated choreographers. For her first full-length ballet, in 2011, choreographer Jayne Smeulders—at the time a Principal Dancer with the West Australian Ballet—decided to tackle this choice piece from the repertoire.

Between her cruel stepmother and two selfish and vain stepsisters, poor Cinderella has a hard life. And yet: the wave of a magic wand will change the course of her destiny forever. Re-created for Les Grands Ballets with glittering new sets and costumes, this sublime ballet on pointe, faithful to the famous tale, is a delight for the whole family—a touch of magic to wind up the season in grand style!
