La Cenerentola

Do dreams really come true? 

Can love conquer greed and cruelty? Find out in Rossini’s timeless classic, Cinderella!

In this touching and hilarious Italian version of the classic fairytale, the kind-hearted Angelina (Cinderella) is forced to work for her wicked stepfather and cruel stepsisters. Meanwhile, Prince Ramiro trades places with his valet to go door to door in disguise and find a maiden who is true of heart. As romance blossoms and Angelina’s step-family plots to win the prince, mistaken identities, hilarious hijinks, chaos and — of course — a ball ensue. Set against a mid-century modern backdrop (think Sabrina, with Audrey Hepburn), Rossini’s lively melodies prove that forgiveness, kindness, and love really can conquer all!
