Fairytale opera La Cenerentola by Rossini in an exurberant production


In this opera by Rossini, written over 200 years ago, the impoverished Don Magnifico tyrannizes his two daughters and stepdaughter Angelina. When the prince announces that he will give a ball at the palace, the father sees his chance. If he can marry off one of his daughters, he will never want for money. But charity wins over greed in the end. Nothing turns out the way Don Magnifico has planned.

Rossini’s exuberant opera pays tribute to the Enlightenment and equality among all peoples. Inspired by Charles Dickens, the director, Lindy Hume, has created a romantic opera in which goodness prevails. The imaginative stage design is by Dan Potra, who was also the man behind the acclaimed Dracula production at the Royal Swedish Opera. The first performance of La Cenerentola in 1817 was spurned by the critics, but Rossini did not lose faith in his work. Today, La Cenerentola is Rossini’s most popular opera after Barbiere di Siviglia. A production originally created by Opera Queensland and New Zealand Opera.
