Paris Opera’s ballet performance Cinderella screened in Hanoi

NDO – Hanoi’s audiences will have an opportunity to enjoy a screening of the Paris Opera’s ballet performance Cinderella at the L’Espace Cultural Centre in Hanoi on October 19.


An adaptation of Charles Perrault’s fairy tale, the ballet was choreographed by Rudolf Nureyev.

Cinderella (played by Agnès Letestu) is victimized by a rotten family. Her only wish is to escape the harsh world in which she lives. One day, her kindness is rewarded when she helps a person in need and changes her destiny forever. The character, who embodies the fairy in Perrault’s tale, is Hollywood star José Martinez and this is how Nureyev turns him into a modern prince charming…

This refreshing version of Cinderella has featured in the repertoire of the Paris Opera Ballet since its creation in 1986.

The ballet’s music is by Serguei Prokofiev, while the narration is by Aurélie Dupont, Dance Director of the Paris Opera.

The screening will start at 7pm. Ticket costs VND100,000.
