What it is about…
If you took away the glass slippers, the pumpkin and the fairy godmother what would be left of the Cinderella story? Quite a bit! - is the answer.
You get a prince looking for a princess, a neglected girl, some juicy sibling rivalry and a wise philosopher.
There’s also one thing that is mentioned in the fairy tale but made very explicit in the opera. Why is Cinderella able to overcome all the hardships in her path? It’s because of her kindness and decency — which we know from the opera’s full title, La Cenerentola, ossia La Bonta in Trionfo — that is, “ Cinderella, or Goodness Triumphant.”
A fun and engaging mix of music and storytelling promoting tolerance, acceptance and respect.
