La Cenerentola (CINDERELLA)
A young woman dreams that love and kindness conquer greed and cruelty. But do dreams really come true? Rossini’s charming take on the classic Cinderella story will delight audiences of all ages in this family-friendly opera.
Kind-hearted Angelina (Cinderella) is forced to work for her wicked stepfather and cruel stepsisters. Prince Ramiro, longing to find love, switches identities with his valet as they search the kingdom for a woman who is true of heart. Set in the mid-century modern town of Newport, Rhode Island, this enchanting story promises hilarious hijinks, mistaken identities, and – of course – a beautiful ball, all set to Rossini’s effervescent score.
