Drawn from the original French fairy tale by Charles Perrault, Stowell focused on the spirit of the story to develop the ballet’s romantic and tender themes, a narrative of “love lost, and love found.” Roles for the entire Company, as well as some of Stowell’s most endearing creations for PNB School students, combine with more than one-hundred elaborately detailed costumes and vast painted backdrops to transport Cinderella from her softly illuminated memories, through misty magical landscapes to, at last, a royal palace adorned with Rococo frescos and crystal chandeliers. Here, in the midst of a swirling,
scarlet-clad ballroom, Cinderella and her prince flash like precious diamonds in one of PNB’s most breathtaking moments.
