Founded in 1985 and rapidly becoming a leading company in the international dance scene, the Monte-Carlo Ballet first performed Cinderella 25 years ago. Since then, the choreography, created on the music of Prokofiev, has been performed around the world to uniform acclaim. It is the work of the world-famous Jean-Christophe Maillot, winner of the Nijinsky Award and the Prix de Lausanne Lifetime Achievement Award.
Without forcibly redrawing the contours of the story, the production explores the deeper layers of the tale that everyone knows, probing the psychological drives behind the relationships between the characters and the metaphorical or symbolic meanings of the latter. All this is done with the utmost artistry of movement and spectacle, through the story of a young, simple and honest girl.
Like the fairy tale, the production is about wonder and real beauty – the one that needs no accessories, no fancy dresses, not even the famed fairy shoes. Cinderella’s bare feet become the symbolic subject of the entire ballet. They are the emblem of the young girl’s poverty and exclusion, while being the body part without which there is no dance.

The performance is not recommended for audiences under the age of 12.
