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.
