Its premiere, however, actually took place in Moscow's Bolshoi Theatre on November 21, 1945. The work achieved international status with Frederick Ashton's version, which appeared under the English title of Cinderella in 1948. The accompanying recording of Sergei Prokofiev's ballet Cinderella is taken from a performance by the Opéra National de Lyon in 1989, choreographed by Maguy Marin. Set and costumes are by Montserrat Casanova, lighting design by John Spradbery, and the musical directorship of the Opéra National taken up by Yakov Kreisberg.
