Do dreams really come true and can love conquer greed and cruelty? Find out in Rossini’s timeless classic, Cinderella!
The kind-hearted Angelina (Cinderella) is forced to work for her wicked stepfather and cruel stepsisters. Meanwhile, Prince Ramiro trades places with his valet and goes door to door in disguise to find the one maiden who is true of heart. Confusion and chaos ensue as Angelina’s family plots to win the heart of the prince. Through Rossini’s lively melodies, Prince Ramiro and Angelina prove that forgiveness, kindness, and love can conquer all!
