Available on DVD for the first time - Filmed in HD wide-screen. A colorful, imaginative and modern version of Prokofiev's popular classic ballet, performed by one of the world's most prestigious dance companies, in the choreography of their Artistic Director, Jean-Christophe Maillot. Like Prokofiev, Maillot sees Cinderella not only as a fairy tale character but also a human being, who lives and feels and whose fate moves us. Through this essentially human vision, Maillot toys with natural and supernatural elements to reveal a giant picture book, both strange and familiar. The brilliant ensemble is led by exquisite prima ballerina Bernice Coppieters as the Fairy Godmother, and the amazing Aurélia Schaefer as Cinderella. Two bonus features will reward ballet enthusiasts: a portrait of Bernice Coppieters and "The Making of the Ballet."
