In a season which continues to surprise and delight its audiences, the Royal Opera House Muscat presents an unusual and intriguing interpretation of the ballet, Cinderella. Performed by Ballet de l’Opéra de Lyon, the contemporary choreography and staging is by the famous French choreographer and dancer, Maguy Marin. This daring and adventurous production is set in a doll’s house where the dancers come to life as dolls. Admired as an avant-garde, break-through version of the tale of Cinderella, and described by some critics as a brilliant theatrical triumph, the ballet has successfully toured the world since its premiere in 1985. The work has been praised for its amazing manipulation of mood, engaging narrative and innovative staging. It is regarded by some critics as a stepping stone from classical ballet to something radically new.
Sergei Prokofiev’s dramatic multi-faceted music is performed by one of ROHM’s favourite orchestras, the superb PKF-Prague Philharmonia conducted by the brilliant award-winning Russian Conductor, Konstantin Chudovsky.
This novel version of Cinderella will be performed at the Royal Opera House Muscat on Thursday 21st and Friday 22nd December at 7:00 pm and Saturday December 23 at 4:00pm. For further information and booking consult the ROHM website: www.rohmuscat.org.om
