Rossini’s second masterpiece, La Cenerentola, premiered at the Teatro Valle in Rome on the January 25, 1817, less than a year after the first performance of his The Barber of Seville.

In this production, a set-up made to celebrate 200 years Rossini in Rome, Emma Dante’s “rousing Cinderella” (Corriere della Sera) “succeeds in impressing her own contemporary vision on a classic masterpiece, in perfect symbiosis with the spirit of Rossini” (Opera Now).

“Alejo Pérez deserves the credit for an excellent ensemble and a dazzling rhythmic rendering of the Rossinian score.” (La Nazione Il Resto del Carlino Il Giorno)
 

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.
