Choreographer Sir Frederick Ashton's take on Perrault's the timeless fairy tale is captured live at the Sadler's Wells Royal Ballet in this performance starring Dame Margot Fonteyn in the title role. Originally telecast on April 19, 1957 on NBC, this particular incarnation of the Cinderella fable soon became a staple of the Royal Ballet's repertoire, and features Ashton himself in the role of one of the cruel and ugly step-sisters.
