Szeged Contemporary Dance Company presents:
The story of Cinderella is one of the world’s most popular tales adapted to stage and screen. The music for the ballet version was composed by Szergej Prokofjev. After the death of her mother Cinderella got her nickname from her step-sisters and step-mother who forced her to be their maid and made her even clean the fireplace. When the heir to the throne organised a ball to pick his wife from the prettiest ladies of the kingdom the step-sisters tried to balk Cinderella’s plan to join – unsucessfully, as with the help of a fairy godmother she did make it to the evening in secret. Wearing her enchanting dress and golden shoes she shined like the brightest star. The prince fell in love with her for the first sight and as he was trying to figure out who the girl was with no effect she disappeared at midnight. However she lost one of her shoes while running out of the palace. The prince made each and every girl try on that one shoe in his kingdom but at the end it only suited the gorgeous Cinderella’s foot. He married her straightaway and they lived happily ever after.
