The Bayerische Staatsoper prepares for the Munich Opera Festival 2023.
Members of the production team take part in the approx. one-hour introductory matinee for Cinderella. They report on the rehearsal process and explain their view of the piece. A few short sequences from the choreography are shown to give the audience an idea of the dance techniques used in Christopher Wheeldon's ballet. The music of Prokofiev is discussed as well as the question of the importance of fairy tales in today's world. The event will predominantly be in English.
