Rossini's La Cenerentola
The fairy story with the glass slipper and golden carriage becomes an enchanting opera that replaces special effects with the real magic of true love and goodness. Despite her evil stepsisters, Angelina (Vivica Genaux) manages to be the belle of the ball, thanks to the wise Alidoro (Joseph Barron) and a beautiful bracelet. After the ball, the prince (Arthur Espiritu) finds his princess and sees her true beauty: the ability to forgive. With Paolo Pecchioli as Don Magnifico. Antony Walker conducts.
