The Australian Ballet's EduHub provides a range of resources about ballet including information on productions. Alexei Ratmansky's Cinderella is a modern story ballet charting classic story to Prokofiev's cinematic score. Jerôme Kaplan’s costumes draw inspiration from Dior, Schiaparelli, the elegance of 1940s Hollywood, and Surrealist art. Resources include articles, photographs and videos exploring a range of topics from pre-production (page) to performance (stage) including: a synopsis of the story and the character list; choreography; the music; set, costume and lighting design as well as a behind the scenes section which provides background articles on the history of the ballet and its contemporary interpretation by The Australian Ballet. A downloadable teacher resource kit collates all the information and provides additional creative response tasks for students.
