From L’Espace:

You are invited to the screening of the Paris Opera’s ballet performance “Cinderella” at L’Espace.

– Based on the work of Charles Perrault
– Music: Serguei Prokofiev
– Adaptation, choreography, and stage direction: Rudolf Nureyev
– Narration: Aurélie Dupont – Dance Director of the Paris Opera

Rudolf Nureyev presents Cinderella under the Hollywood lights! Charles Perrault’s famous tale, set to music by Sergueï Prokofiev, is transposed into a film setting of the 7th art, American-style. Still there are the pumpkin carriage, the fairy godmother, the glass slippers, the journey to a happy ever after with Prince Charming, now much more cinematic!

This is how the producers pay tribute to the ballet’s choreographer Rudolf Nureyev, whose life story is not so different from that of Cinderella.
