Rossini’s La Cenerentola


Cinderella is the ultimate rags to riches tale. Featuring a host of colourful characters, this new production is a highly entertaining take on one of Rossini's most popular comedies. With music that's bright, breathless and full of energy, it's a Cinderella story...but not quite as you may know it.

Forced to work as servant to her stepfather and stepsisters, Cenerentola (Cinderella) dreams of the past, and of a better life. Kind and generous, she is all that her family is not. Hearing that Don Ramiro is holding a ball to choose a wife, her sisters gleefully prepare themselves for royal life. Then a mysterious veiled lady makes an unexpected appearance at the palace and their ambitions look set to be thwarted...

Rossini’s sparkling score demands impressive vocal agility and the best in comedy characterisation. Russian mezzo-soprano Victoria Yarovaya, winner of the 2013 Mercedes Viñas Prize, is Cenerentola, and rising Rossini star Nico Darmanin is Prince Ramiro. The talented ensemble cast also features baritone Richard Burkhard (The Magic Flute 2012), soprano Rebecca Bottone (The Pirates of Penzance 2013) and renowned bass Graeme Danby.
