Program notes

Jean-Christophe Maillot's Cinderella explores the parallel universes of artifice and simplicity and reflects on how loss can shape the direction of a life. The "choreographed film" features the artists of the Ballets of Monte Carlo dancing to Prokofiev's score, which is magnificently interpreted by the Cleveland Orchestra under the baton of Vladimir Ashkenazy.
