Synopsis


PROLOGUE

Cinderella, from the depths of her solitude, lets herself be invaded by the memories of her mother and her father, the image of lost family happiness and love. A shared anguish - conjured up from this dream, or actual presence - remains with the child and her father.

ACT I

Scene 1 - Cinderella's house (1)

Cinderella, holding in her arms the dress her mother was wearing for her last ball, remains pensive. Her father, in the light of his new family, is not quite the same. Distressed, he hesitates between the desire to protect her and the submission to his new wife. Cinderella, with her stepmother and her stepsisters, discovers the violence of power struggles, rejection, ill will, and tyrannical gestures. A strange messenger comes to put an end to the two sisters' quarrels: she brings an invitation from the Prince for the court ball. The pleasure superintendents, beauty experts, are ready to officiate.

Scene 2 - Cinderella's house (2)

Whimsical characters, the pleasure superintendents are the foremen of the festivities. They bring the ball dresses, exhibited on four mannequins, half-human, half-mechanical figures, half-masked, giving the impression of a fashion show. The sisters and the stepmother took great care in their faces. In their impatience and greed, they rush to grab the dresses, only take half of them and they look at themselves with rapture in front of large distorting mirrors. Cinderella becomes aware of the invitation, but her new family makes fun of her and sends her back to her lentil dish. The sisters and stepmother go to the ball, satisfied.

Scene 3 - Entrance of the charming prince

The young charming prince appears, in company of his friends, as an adolescent blessed with luck, but little mature, disappointed not to find what he is desperately missing. A touching character, he tries to give a meaning to his life by small pleasures, which disappoint him as soon as they are satisfied. Both pleasure superintendents are busy with the preparations.
