Prince and Princess Mulakov

Parents to Prince Mikhail and good friends of Count Serbrenska, they were at the picnic on the terrible day of the Count’s death. They host the ball where the Prince first asks Cinderella to dance.

Prince Mikhail

The Prince who falls in love with Cinderella at the winter ball and, with only her crystal slipper as a clue, searches high and low for the mysterious girl for whom the shoe will fit.

Nikolai

Prince Mikhail’s best friend who tries to stop Cinderella’s Stepmother interfering at the ball and helps the Prince in his search to find Cinderella after she leaves behind her crystal slipper.

The Magician
