Cinderella by the Brothers Grimm is one of the best-known tales about piety and evil, about the lust for power and honour, about intrigue and loyalty. Cinderella meets the Prince while dancing at a ball and our performance tells their story through dance and music. The dynamic choreography made for the music of Ghymes evokes life in the royal court, the squabbling Ugly Sisters, the search for the owner of the lost shoe and the union of the lovers. The dance and music expressively convey emotions and human values inherent in the story. The Duna Art Ensemble created this spectacular and cheerful but at the same time educational production for children by borrowing from the dances of European peoples from Scandinavia to the Balkans.
