Set in the Roaring 20's this take on the classic tale has subtle but important differences. Listen in on a fascinating discussion.

The beloved tale of CINDERELLA (La Cenerentola) meets operatic delight in this bubbling Rossini hit! You know the story: Cinderella is dressed in rags and destined to toil away for her nasty stepsisters and horrible stepfather - who is scheming to convince the Prince to marry one of his "real" daughters. But not so fast! Mean girls aren't the Prince's style, and there's a happily-ever-after ending for the maid with the heart of gold.

Sung in English, this opera is magic for the whole family!
