Notes and Editorial Reviews

This well-known fairy tale, set to dance over 150 years ago, did not achieve its enormous success until Frederick Ashton, inspired by the wistful and imaginative Prokofiev score (written in 1945) created Britain's first full-length ballet. In this spectacular and lavish film production, the beautiful Hannelore Bey dances the role of Cinderella with touches of tenderness, dignity and alluring grace, while Principal Dancer Roland Gawlick creates an outstanding Prince, bringing out the ballet's inventiveness, farce and fluidity. The Berlin Comic Opera Ballet, choreographed by Tom Schilling. Enchanting!
