Recorded Live on November 13, 2004, as a co-production between the Rossini in Wildbad Festival and SWR Rundfunkorchester Kaiserslautern.

Superbly led by Zedda, whose knowledge and love of this opera was second to none, this is as near-perfect a performance as we have yet had on record. The young Joyce DiDonato stars as a fraught and fragile yet ultimately radiant Cenerentola.

History

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.
