How nice that you get to see Midsummer -- none of the movie theaters here in Seattle are participating in this! (though we do get the Met's HD broadcasts, so I shouldn't whine too much)

:flowers: This DVD has been released in Europe and the Uk, it is also available from Amazon over the net. I would imagine it is super on the wide cinema screen.

I think it is excellent, as it is a whole new concept, which has no relation to the original Cinderella
being set in Hollywood. You can reconise the characters in the story, and the wonderful Prokiev music
still exists. Glamerous costumes and scenery to match the theme take you on a magic journey.

The cast is absolitely amazing. The Step Mother in her elegant clothes, on pointe,has some very subtile actions which are quite hilarious. Her horrid daughters played so well by Laeticia Pujol and Stephanie Romberg, are extremely funny. You simply cannot help laughing at them.

I am not going to tell too much about this production, wait to see it and be very pleasantly surprised.
Look out for the magical waltz when Cinderella arrives at the studio, the Pas de deux on the stool, with the Actor and Cinderella, and the final most beautiful ending with the lovers, a wind machine and the floating silk.
