For this production of Cinderella created in 1986 and never performed in choreographic form at the Paris Opera, Rudolf Nureyev and his designer Petrika Ionesco took Perrault’s tale into the studios of Hollywood.
As the ‘dream factory’ par excellence, the movie industry offered a sort of escape from the difficult years of the post-depression era. Prokofiev’s music also resounds with the spirit of the 1930’s, infused with memories of the composer’s visit to the United States and Europe during those years.
