About

One of the most extraordinary musical prodigies of our day, Alma Deutscher presents a modern version of the beloved fairy tale blending humor, poetry, and the magic of theatre. Deutscher began composing her Cinderella at age 8, but without directly taking up the original tale by the Brothers Grimm, preferring to give music the predominant place in her spectacle. The title character here is also a young composer, envied by her stepmother and stepsisters for her talent and forced to toil away as a mere copyist. But compelled by the same love for art, Prince Charming—a poet, in Deutscher's retelling—comes to Cinderella's aid...
