La Cenerentola brings to life the timeless tale of Cinderella, but this isn't the story we grew up with. Rossini's version of the fairytale takes place in Italy, where the wicked stepsisters are tricked by a footman disguised as the prince, and Angelina (Cenerentola/Cinderella) falls in love with a prince disguised as a footman. Accessible, quick-moving, and comic, La Cenerentola will capture the attention of both girls and boys with its tricks and turns, the sisters' delightful wickedness, and Angelina's triumph. Lasting approximately an hour with a question and answer period after the show, La Cenerentola is the perfect introductory opera for children who love stories, singing, and acting. Professional singers and a live orchestra bring an authentic and exciting opera experience to children and parents alike. An emcee/narrator will guide the audience through the ins and outs of opera with lots of audience participation. The performance is probably most appropriate for children ages 3 and older.
