Description

Specially staged in studio for this recording, Maguy Marin‘s reworking of the Cinderella story is astonishingly original and magical. “This is not Prokofiev’s Cinderella but Marin’s version - a brilliantly conceived one at that” (Anna Kisselgoff, New York Times). Montserrat Casanova’s designs transform the dancers into doll characters, using masks and padded costumes, and her doll’s house set, with its compartmentalised rooms, is equally inventive, Prokofiev’s wistful music has been cut, and additional sound effects added, to enhance Marin’s vision.
