Cinderella Live At Palais Garnier Paris April 2008
Rudolf Nureyev’s colourful, “movie-star” version of Prokofiev’s
Cinderella retains the classic Perrault story but sets it in America
during the difficult years of the Great Depression in the 1930s and
1940s. Agnès Letestu stars as Cinderella who, living with her
alcoholic father, tyrannical stepmother and two spiteful stepsisters,
dreams of escape and stardom in Hollywood. After a promising
screen-test during which The Film Star, suavely portrayed by José
Martinez, falls head over heels in love with her, she is fearful that
her new-found happiness is too good to be true and will vanish
with her youth. Fortunately, her magical protector (in the form of
The Producer) and her lover move heaven and earth for a ‘happily
ever after’ ending. This is Paris Opera Ballet at its very best.
