Program notes

The unique atmosphere of Nureyev's Cinderella, told and analysed by its main characters on and off stage.

Petrika Ionesco, who designed the beautiful sets for Nureyev's ballet, initiated this arrangement for Perrault's tale. "I wondered what young girls these days dreamt about, he says, and decided they dreamt of Hollywood and its magic. What's a magician these days? Cinderella's good fairy could only be a producer. Only a Hollywood producer can pull magic from his sleeve, can use special effects to give the impression that dreams are reality. And what is Cinderella doing if not dreaming of an escape from this morbid and oppressive family?"
