Synopsis

La Cenerentola
Rossini

Rossini's delightful retelling of Cinderella but with a few twists along the way. 

The kind-hearted Angelina (Cinderella) is forced to scrub the floors by her wicked stepfather, while her ugly sisters prepare to go to the Prince’s grand ball at the palace. As she dreams of a better life she is visited by a mysterious old beggar man. He tells her she will go to the ball, and will also be rewarded for her kind heart.  Will she live happily ever after?

WNO transports you into a candy-coloured world of fairy tale full of wit, larger than life characters, delightful mice and vibrant costumes. Tomáš Hanus conducts Rossini's sparkling score, as we watch La Cenerentola transform from rags to riches through the power of music.

Sung in Italian, with English surtitles.
