Program notes

To this day, few children’s stories can boast the international influence enjoyed by Charles Perrault’s Cinderella: with a ballet by Prokofiev, multiple plays, and beloved cinematic adaptations from such directors as Georges Méliès and Walt Disney, the young princess has inspired countless creators through the years. Before appearing on the silver screen, Cinderella graced the stage of the Paris Opéra-Comique in 1899 at the premiere of Massenet’s Cendrillon, on a libretto by Henri Cain.
