which permeates all its musical, artistic, directorial and choreographic components. The remake of the popular ballet Cinderella made by the world-famous French choreographer Jean-Christophe Maillot to the music of Sergei Prokofiev reflects another dramaturgical line of the Czech National Ballet – an effort to return titles that have become very popular in the past and whose quality and significance will never lose its artistic value or topical message.
Cinderella has an extraordinary musical score by Sergei Prokofiev, which alongside with Romeo and Juliet became a popular fixture of the Czech National Ballet's repertoire. Jean-Christophe Maillot is a prominent leading choreographic figure associated with the equally famous ballet ensemble in Monte Carlo where this production comes from.
Maillot has a very distinctive style based on a refined, primarily artistic concept of ballets. The artist presents the virtuoso classical ballet technique in new variants of movement and spatial structures originating as if from "another world". His Cinderella also bears this signature technique.
