Join Leo Schofield AM for this pre-screening presentation of Paris Opera Ballet’s tribute to former director Rudolf Nureyev’s 1986 version of Cinderella.
Charles Perrault’s celebrated tale, set to music by Sergei Prokofiev, is transported to an early film set. In a series of references to the heroes of the American cinema, Nureyev propels his Cinderella under the spotlights of Hollywood.
With a producer fairy godmother and star actor as Prince Charming, she escapes her miserable destiny and sees her dreams come true in a story not without similarities with that of the choreographer, the young Tartar, and said to be partly inspired by his own career trajectory.
Your ticket includes choice of either choc top, coffee, bottled water or glass of wine.
For the Friends of the Australian Ballet in association with Palace Opera and Ballet
