Elina Garanca triumphs as Rossini's Cinderella in this delightful Metropolitan Opera production that was recorded live in 2009. The opera is introduced by baritone Thomas Hampson, who also interviews Garanca. Also included are interviews with Simone Alberghini, Alessandro Corbelli, Lawrence Brownlee and John Relyea.

“Elina Garanca was a sensation at the Metropolitan Opera’s spring simulcast of La Cenerentola with her vocal virtuosity, intensely blond glamour, and acting ability…” - The Philadelphia Inquirer

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.
