In 1985, Les Ballets de Monte-Carlo Company was founded thanks to H.R.H. the Princess of Hanover who wished to perpetuate the long tradition of dance in Monaco and its famous Ballets Russes. The appointment of Jean-Christophe Maillot in 1993 brought the company renewal and international renown thanks to his choreographies, acclaimed the world over.

For its Kennedy Center debut, the company presents a strikingly original adaptation of the well-known fairy tale Cinderella. Setting the work to Sergei Prokofiev’s classic score, choreographer and director Jean-Christophe Maillot adds his own dramatic flair, mixing emotional characterizations and passionate choreography with traditional ballet for a magical evening of performance. Gone are the usual garnishments of the story—the carriage, the fireplace, and even the glass slippers. In their place, you will find an innovative reinvention that dives deep into the psychology of the characters and their connections to each other.
