Drama in three acts
Libretto by Alexey Miroshnichenko
Premiere will take place in Perm in December 2016
The first ballet premiere of the season applies to interpretation of the classics. In December one will see new version of Sergey Prokofiev's Cinderella staged by Alexey Miroshnichenko, the principal ballet master of the theatre. In his new production he keeps thinking of the culture and aesthetics of the Soviet past. All choreography will be absolutely new, but will correspond to the chosen times.
Alexey Miroshnichenko, the principal ballet master of Perm Opera and Ballet Theatre:
— The interest to the "Soviet past" doesn't get weak. It's obvious that this collective experience has still being realised. And as soos as this process hasn't been finished yet, we can't go futher. We tried to make it up with the 1930s lately, now we've been making it up with the 1950s.
The idea of putting the ballet action in the 1950s and in unusual environment belongs to Teodor Currentzis.
The ballet will be performed by the dancers of Perm Ballet company and musicAeterna orchestra
Please mention the conductors of the premiere series: on December 20, 21 and 24 — Teodor Currentzis, on December 23 — Andrei Danilov
