    Sorry, but for me, Cinderella is a huge disappointment compared to the inspired masterpiece that is Prokofiev's Romeo & Juliet Ballet.

    I wonder if you like it.Some found it not too typical.

    It's absolutely packed with gorgeous numbers. Rozhdestvensky's recording in particular is superb

    So far watched only some bits and pieces, I have to watch this when I am alone, not much love for ballet in this household, but what I saw looked good.

    A wonderful score, full of strange magic, quite un-Disneyish. I first heard it as a small child on a record telling the story of Cinderella. Imagine the delight of rediscovering and recognizing it later in life.

    Couldn't agree more.As far as recordings are concerned,Rozhdestvensky's recording is the best.
