Notes & Reviews:
The premiere of Prokofiev's ballet "Cinderella" was held in the Bolshoi Theater in Moscow in 1945 where it was an immediate success. In an article penned at the time of its premiere, Prokofiev wrote: "What I above all wanted to set into music is the romantic love of Cinderella and the Prince in the tradition of the classical ballet." Cinderella is certainly the most dancing and upbeat ballet by Prokofiev, often unfairly overshadowed by Romeo and Juliet.
