La Cenerentola by Gioachino Rossini

Available for prebuy
Dramma giocoso in two acts, on a libretto by Jacopo Ferretti
after the tale Cinderella by Charles Perrault
created on January 28, 1817 at the Teatro Valle in Rome.

In Italian, with French subtitles

To create this jubilant, phenomenally energetic two-act musical extravaganza, Rossini asked his librettist Jacopo Ferretti to strip Perrault’s tale of its fairy tale elements. True to his reputation, he created a comic triumph in only three weeks: of Don Magnifico’s three daughters, Clorinda, Tisbé and Angelina (known as Cenerentola), which one is the most beautiful and generous? Faced with her two pesky sisters, Angelina will be able to guide the choice of Prince Ramiro, in search of the ideal woman. Still, it will be necessary to find Angelina after her precipitated departure of the ball. A clue should however put him on the way to facilitate the reunion of the lovers and the triumph of happiness. For this new production Alicia Geugelin returns to the Opera Orchestra, after her breathtaking staging of Virility.e.s, to bring out the explosive vitality of this Cenerentola.
