NDO - The classical ballet Cinderella by Russian composer Sergei Prokofiev will be restaged at the Ho Chi Minh City Opera House on April 7-8, the Ho Chi Minh City Ballet Symphony Orchestra (HBSO) announced on April 3.

The event is a collaboration programme between the HBSO and Norway’s Transposition Programme.

The ballet, composed between 1940 and 1944, has inspired an estimated 1,500 versions of the ballet around the world.

The ballet is choreographed by Johanne Jakhelln Constant of Norway, who has worked with HBSO to stage the ballets ‘The Nutcracker’ and ‘Coppélia’.

The show will feature young dancer Tran Hoang Yen as Cinderella and Japanese dancer Nobuo Fujino as the Prince.

Cinderella premiered at the city’s Opera House in 2013 and has become an annual performance to entertain the city’s audiences, especially young people.
