Rossini's rollicking fairy tale
Happy endings don’t just fall into your lap. In a delightfully entertaining spin on the ultimate rags-to-riches tale, our spunky heroine seizes an opportunity to outwit her social-climbing family and nab the most eligible bachelor in the land. Rossini’s effervescent bel canto romantic comedy sparkles with catchy melodies, infusing a staging full of period charm with energy and wit.
Two of the fastest-rising stars on today’s international opera scene, Serena Malfi and Levy Sekgapane, head the cast as the romantic leads, with comic treasure Alessandro Corbelli returning as the pompous father standing in the way of true love. The production, by Stefan Herheim, "creates a beautiful storybook world" that is also "fun!" (The Times, UK). La Cenerentola will be conducted by Roberto Abbado, making his house debut.

"The flood of ideas Herheim brought to the work brought laughter and high spirits."
