The ballet “Cinderella” is rightfully considered one of the best works not only in the work of Sergei Prokofiev, but also in ballet art in general. The plot is based on the plot of a fantastic tale by Charles Perrault, to which European composers have repeatedly turned. In particular, it was Fernando Sora’s Cinderella (Sandrillona) that opened the Moscow Bolshoi Theater on June 6, 1825. “Cinderella” to music by Prokofiev was also presented for the first time on the stage of the Bolshoi – November 21, 1945 (choreography by Rostislav Zakharov). The most famous ballet directors are Rudolf Nureyev (1987, Paris Opera) and Frederic Ashton (1948, Sadler’s Wells Theater in London). The debut screening of “Cinderella” by the Ballet Studio of Svetlana Antipova was held in Odessa in June 2004 on the stage of the Mikhail Vodyanoy Musical Comedy Theater. Svetlana Aleksandrovna Antipova danced on the stage of the Odessa Opera and Ballet Theater for 30 years. The studio ballet school, of which she is the founder and permanent leader, became a laureate of numerous international competitions, participated in festivals of Ukrainian children’s ballet theaters. On the stage of the Odessa National Academic Opera and Ballet Theater, pupils of the studio also present ballets “Alice in Wonderland” and “Little Red Riding Hood”.
