Between the sickly sweetness of the Disney studios and the cruelty of Perrault or the Brothers Grimm, the lyrical adaptation of Massenet takes on the allure of a light-hearted comedy. Appearance of a larger-than-life fairy, spinning ballroom scene, magic slipper: stage director Laurent Pelly takes on this fairy tale with the complicity of a top-tier French cast. Conductor Claude Schnitzler leads the Orchestre national de Lille with all the refinement he dedicates to this repertoire.
