Premiere of CENDRILLON

Opera "Cendrillon" will premiere today at the Kaunas State Musical Theatre, Lithuania. "Cendrillon" is an opera - described as a "fairy tale" - in four acts by Jules Massenet to a French libretto by Henri Caïn based on Perrault's 1698 version of the Cinderella fairy tale.

Here is also a quick look into the workshop of Marina Kazijeva who crafts the glitzy footwear for this opera by hand. The faces are sculpted by Aida Vagusevičiūtė from the Kaunas State Musical Theatre.
