New Ratmansky Cinderella at Australian Ballet

Alexei Ratmansky will choreograph a new Cinderella for the Australian Ballet in 2013, to premiere in Melbourne on September 17 and open in Sydney in late November.

The sets and costumes will be designed by the Frenchman Jérôme Kaplan, who worked with Ratmansky for his 2010 production of Don Quixote for the Dutch National Ballet, and for his 2011 production of Lost Illusions for the Bolshoi Ballet.
Kaplan designed a Cinderella for the Ballets de Monte Carlo in 1998 while Ratmansky, in his early years as a choreographer, created a Cinderella in 2002 for the Mariinsky Ballet.This version was recently performed at the Edinburgh Festival and is touring to the Kennedy Center in Washington in October.
The new work in Australia is set in Russia in the early 1930s, and its design is said to bring layers of Surrealism to the ballet.
