Details:  Commissioned by the Mariinsky in 2002, Cinderella was the production that launched choreographer Alexei Ratmansky on to the world stage. Filmed in 2013 and now released on video for the first time, the production stars acclaimed prima ballerina Diana Vishneva as Cinderella, and is led from the podium by leading Prokofiev interpreter, Valery Gergiev. Ratmansky revitalizes Prokofiev's ballet, weaving together an array of different styles and echoing the score's complexities. The result is a fresh and modern account of the classic fairytale, with stunning performances from the Mariinsky dancers and the Mariinsky orchestra. "This is Diana Vishneva's show. There is an easy fluidity to her movement which enchants - a mere brush of her cheek reveals a tender vulnerability.' (Bach Track) "When ballet is played and performed like this, it is the most natural and expressive art form there is. Clever Ratmansky. Wonderful Mariinsky."
