    Default CInderella by Prokofiev

    Your opinion(s)? I think this is beautiful to the ear, the eye and the heart altogether!

    I am seeing it for the first time later this month - in Melbourne. Choreographed by Ratmansky - his second staging. Apparently American Ballet Theatre added it recently to their repertoire (Ashton's choreography), but it doesn't seem to get programmed that often.

    to ears, yes, but to the eye - the dancers movements lack seriously in fluidity, lightness and grace.

    So you're from Moscow? How popular is Prokofiev's music over there today? Do younger Russian people like Classical music?

    This brings back memories - I danced in Cinderella years ago. It was the first ballet I had a solo in!

    The composer is Sergei Prokofiev, and this isn't his only ballet, if you like this then try his "Romeo and Juliet" ballet.

    It's pretty good, an interesting twist to a famous story!

    I like late Prokofiev a lot, including this ballet score, I have a recording of the music by Philippe Jurowski which I listen to often.

    Anyone who likes it should certainly try Prokofiev’s 9th piano sonata too, and the seventh symphonies.
