Notes and Editorial Reviews

The much-loved story of Cinderella has captured hearts and minds for centuries and this historic color recording from 1969, full of dreams and magic, shows why. Infused with the drama of Prokofiev’s luscious score, the tale of transformation provided creative inspiration for Frederick Ashton’s acclaimed first full-length ballet. His enchanting production stands as a showcase of choreographic mastery and features one of the Royal Ballet’s most celebrated partnerships with Antoinette Sibley as Cinderella and Anthony Dowell as the Prince. Ashton’s distinctive theatricality is also revealed in a touching and hilarious cameo as one of the Ugly Sisters opposite Robert Helpmann.
