In Rossini's version of Cinderella, the fairy tale is stripped of glass mules and an angry stepmother. In only three weeks he wrote an opera in which seriousness and airiness go hand in hand.

Popular opera

Directed by Laurent Pelly, La Cenerentola follows Angelina – Rossini’s Cinderella – as she discovers true love in the form of her prince. In a twist on the classic tale, she first has to overcome not a wicked stepmother, but an evil stepfather.

 

Though La Cenerentola doesn’t include the traditional pumpkin carriage or glass slippers, there are fancy dresses galore! As always, Laurent Pelly designs his own colourful costumes.
