Ballets de Monte Carlo

    Choreographer Jean Christophe Maillot mixed the natural and the supernatural in this visually stunning reinterpretation of the classical ballet “Cinderella” by the ballets de Monte Carlo, using Sergei Prokofiev score. Guided by the memory of her mother, Cinderella opens her own path, searching for recognition and love among the tragic excesses of the court.
