Joyce DiDonato stars as Cinderella in this production of Massenet's Cendrillon, an enchanting retelling of the classical fairy tale.

The New York Times described Joyce DiDonato's performance as "thoroughly enchanting. She won sympathy for the girl's plight at once, and her exquisite articulation of the repeated phrase "Vous etes mon  Prince Charmant" in the first love duet -  surely the opera's most  ravishing moments -  was flawless."

“Glorious,” raved the New York Times when Joyce Di Donato sang the title role of Cendrillon at the Royal Opera in 2011. “Her performance was thoroughly enchanting.” Now, for the first time ever, Massenet’s sumptuous take on the Cinderella story comes to the Met, with DiDonato starring in the title role. She is paired with mezzo-soprano Alice Coote in the trouser role of Prince Charming, Kathleen Kim as the Fairy Godmother, and Stephanie Blythe as the imperious Madame de la Haltière. Bertrand de Billy conducts Laurent Pelly’s imaginative storybook production.

Jules Massenet (1842 – 1912)
