Cinderella / La Cenerentola
“It’s not fair!” the notion of justice is of paramount importance to children, and key to the appeal of the Cinderella story. But whatever your favourite version, you will find something uniquely dark, yet sparkling and touchingly redemptive in Rossini’s La Cenerentola.
Sung in Italian with English surtitles.
This production unfolds from the very pages of books and celebrates the idea of literature, of fantasy, of escapism, and most importantly of Goodness Triumphant. The age-old fairytale resonates as much today as it did in times gone by.
“a miracle of perfection” - Conductor Riccardo Chailly
“Rossini’s musical imagination stops at nothing.” - Conductor Mark Elder
“I have yet to find a weak female character in Rossini. Cenerentola never wavers from her ideal.” - Mezzo-soprano Joyce Didonato
“She conjured effortless innocence with a full, round timbre that she projected spinning round the hall.” - Pittsburgh Post-Gazette on Tara Erraught
“...a secure, high Rossini tenor – wow! – such tenors are in demand.” - Der Neue Merker on Andrew Owens
