A simple story with a sad start and a happy ending.
For this performance a director was hired who unfortunately does not understand much of the story. In all fairness, it is no easy job. How can one fulfil all the roles with only two dancers? Father, Cinderella, step-sisters, step-mother, the fairy, the prince ...?
To ensure that the performance runs smoothly, the director decides to take on the roles of stepmother and fairy godmother herself. She also takes care of the props. A glass slipper, a chest, some clothes, a broom, a chimney, a carriage and a clock are all familiar items. But what does one do with a pumpkin and mice in a theatre? The director has a lot to think about. That is possible when the music plays and the dancers dance.
