Ballets: Grete's Dreams Come True

Recommended Posts

greyhound

The Artistic Director has asked me if I can find any information on a ballet she saw on TV.

 

The information she gave me was "Grete's Dreams Come True" Vienna Opera Ballet, music by Strauss.

 

I searched the inernet and came up with the following: Aschenbrödel

 

Does anyone have any information on this, are they the same ballet?

That latter is a version of "Cinderella". It's the only dedicated ballet score composed by Johann Strauss, Jr.

I knew that Aschenbrödel was a version of Cinderella, but I'm trying to make a connection to the Grete's wish come true.

 

I know that there is a dream sequence in Aschenbrödel about a wish and the main characters name is Grete. They are also both composed b y Strauss. I just don't want to purchase the DVD if they are not the same ballet

Speaking as a historian, you have enough evidence now to purchase the recording, and the worst you will get is something by Johann Strauss, so how bad can that be?

Thanks for the info. I just talk to the director and she confirmed that it was a version of cinderella. That info would have cleared up the confusion earlier.............

 

I found the video on amazon
