Lyon Opera Ballet Presents Cinderella in Ann Arbor Power Center

23 Apr 2015 9:42 PM | Anonymous member
Created in 1984, the Lyon Opera Ballet has revolutionized the classical ballet world, presenting new, contemporary works with witty and often surprising choreography. In Cinderella, Maguy Marin’s magical retelling of the fairy tale, the story unfolds in a three-story dollhouse, a child’s world of toys and wonder. Human dancers are transformed into fat-cheeked dolls, Cinderella scoots off to the ball in a toy car, Prince Charming searches for her on his rocking horse, and Prokofiev’s score is spliced with coos and gurgles. The “astonishingly original and magical” production (New York Times) unfolds with a dreamlike quality, a vision of childhood without sentimentality but with affectionate insight. The work was last seen at UMS in 2002, also performed by Lyon Opera Ballet, and Ann Arbor is the only city in the country that will host this fascinating production this year. - See more at: http://ums.org/performance/lyon-opera-ballet/#sthash.dO4xrIXE.dpuf
