Cendrillon is about a girl Lucette, who is stuck in a oppressed world and wanted to be set free. Pandolfe, her father has married a Madame who tries to court her daughters to the Prince. Lucette turns into Cendrillon with the magic of The Oak and the forest spirits and elves in order to escape this life she was forced into and once again live among nature.

The design team was very interested in exploring the theme on contrast between the real world, dream work and each setting in the real world. The costumes tell a clear color story in order to show and depict where each character came from.
