Cinderella – Frederick Ashton

When Cinderella was premiered by the Sadler’s Wells Ballet in December 1948, it was not only Frederick Ashton’s first full-evening ballet, but also the first production in the West to use Prokoviev’s score – less well known than his Romeo and Juliet, but just as danceable.
