Notes & Reviews:

Heinz Spoerli’s Zurich Ballet Cinderella production, filmed as a musical from Hollywood, turned out to be a huge success at its premiere and must rank as one of the most 'dancerly' stagings Prokofiev’s popular ballet has ever received. It is lavishly choreographed by Spoerli, who makes the most of the purely classical sections of the drama, contrasting them efficiently with the grotesqueries of the ballet mistress and her spoiled daughters in drag. Lead dancers include Karine Seneca as Cinderella, Stanislav Jermakov as Frederic, Marine Castel as The Godmother, Jozef Varga as The Stepmother, and Nicolas Blanc and François Petit as The Stepsisters.
