# 8 - What is the Jester's role in the ballet?

Recommended Posts


A friend of mine, who danced this role with the Royal Ballet, told me that he was instructed that the Jester is in love with Cinderella, but realises she is beyond his reach and does all he can to help her achieve her potential. In this respect, it is actually a semi-tragic role.

Perhaps it's a bit of social commentary; the Jester has a position at court and can influence the Prince, while Cinderella is little more than a servant in a local family, but their true worth is different.
