The ballet Solushka (Cinderella), by Sergei Prokofiev, was written as a commissioned work for the famous ballet company of the Kirov Theatre in what is now St Petersburg. 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. Studio production of the Lyon Opera House recording was by Måns Reuterswärd

Pas de deux( Visual )

in Undetermined and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The pas de deux is used in ballet to describe a duet and can be seen in a wide variety of unforgettable productions, including the The Nutcracker and Don Quixote. Norman McLaren takes a look at the choreography of ballet, with cinematic effects that are all you would expect from this master of improvisation in music and illustration. By exposing the same frames as many as ten times, the artist creates a multiple image of the ballerina and her partner (Margaret Mercier and Vincent Warren). A bare, black stage and back-lit figures, plus the remote, airy music of panpipes, produce a quiet detachment
