Cinderella is the path of a star, a dancing star. Through this vision of Malandain, made of "ashes and magic", the choreographer developed a very personal approach, exploring some themes that he holds dear. Based upon the sparkling score of Sergei Prokofiev and the basic dramaturgy of "Cendrillon" choreographer Thierry Malandain presents his very personal sight of this important milestone in the history of full lenght story ballet including a very special happy ending that brings the prince and his Cinderella together in a world of love. In 2014 Thierry Malandain was awarded with the Taglioni Award in the category "Best Choreographer" for this piece.
