Gioachino Rossini’s Cinderella (La Cenerentola) is one of his funniest and best-known comic operas. Following on his success of The Barber of Seville, Rossini and librettist Jacopo Ferretti worked day and night to create this opera in just three weeks. The story differs somewhat from the classic fairytale: there is no fairy godmother, magic pumpkin, or even a glass slipper! Even so, this enchanting tale delivers with all of the glimmering splendor, the comic characters, and the happy ending, of course. Best of all, it includes Rossini’s effervescent score with the epic orchestral storm before the Prince finally finds Cenerentola,…

Baltiomre, MD 21201 United States

She is betrayed by the King's appetites and the machinations of the men around her, and the opera documents Anna's inevitable progression to the Tower of London and her ultimate execution in true bel canto style. Join us for a free pre-performance…
