Sweet-natured Cendrillon (Cinderella) lives the life of a servant at the home of her downtrodden father and cruel stepmother, teased and tormented by her two foolish stepsisters. Will she make it to the ball to meet the handsome Prince? With a little help from her fairy-godmother she just might.
A glittering comic opera celebrating the power of fantasy, Cendrillon (Cinderella) is Jules Massenet’s musical fairytale. An enchanting retelling of the familiar Cinderella story, it balances the exquisite beauty of its romantic and fantasy scenes with deft, witty portraits of Cinderella’s stepmother and stepsisters. The most successful French opera composer of the turn of the century, Massenet’s blend of colourful characters, generous melodies and sumptuous orchestral textures is both heady and bewitching.
