Saturday February 17, 2018 the Ballet School will perform “Cinderella” on the stage of Teatro Ponchielli in Cremona.
The much loved ballet, which was performed to rousing acclaim in Italy and abroad, features choreography by the Ballet School director, Frédéric Olivieri, commissioned by Fondazione Bracco.
The Ballet School proposes Cinderella in two acts, each with its special highlights. The first act features the dance of the fairies of Spring, Summer, Autumn and Winter summoned by the Fairy Godmother to transform Cinderella’s dream into reality and take her to the Prince’s ball. Highlights of the second act include the Spring ball, the dance of the three oranges – a gift from the Prince contended by Cinderella’s two step-sisters – , the Spanish and Arab dances, and the variations and pas de deux of Cinderella and the Prince.
A host of Academy students and former students have been called upon to produce the ballet, from tailors, hair and makeup specialists to wig makers, set designers and photographers. The stage sets were created by Angelo Sala, the costumes of the main dancers were designed by Chiara Donato, and the sculptures are the work of Fausta Cerizza, former student in the Set Designers Course. The costumes were sewn and decorated by students and former students of the Course for Theatre Tailors and by Sartoria Brancato.
