The Cairo Opera Ballet is presenting over four nights in Cairo and Alexandria the

Sergei Prokofiev’s ballet Cinderella, directed by Erminia Kamel, with music by

the Cairo Opera Orchestra conducted by David Crescenzi. The Cairo performances

were on Thursday 26 and Friday 27 May; the Alexandria performances will be on

Thursday 2 and Friday 3 June at the Sayed Darwish Theatre.

Cinderella was composed by Prokofiev between 1940 and 1944, to a scenario by

Nikolai Volkov. It is notable for its jubilant music, lush scenery, and for the comic

double-roles of the stepsisters.
