Rossini’s ever-popular Cinderella tells the much-loved tale through spectacular arias and irresistible ensembles. Juan Diego Flórez as the Prince, and Joyce DiDonato in the title role, lead an outstanding international cast in Joan Font’s witting and dazzling production, filmed live at Barcelona’s Gran Teatre del Liceu.

"Luscious of voice, with a pyrotechnic technique for days, she sings the hell out of it. Joyce DiDonato, the world is your oyster. A complete musical artist is so rare that it takes only one hand to count them all--here's the opportunity to experience the real thing." – The Houston Press
 

Gioachino Rossini’s La Cenerentola

Rossini’s charming version of the Cinderella story brings unexpected realism to the beloved fairy tale by having the lovers find each other without the help of magic. The opera premiered in 1817 and since the bel canto revival in the mid-20th century has become one of the composer’s most frequently performed works.
