Rossini’s charming interpretation of Perrault and the Grimm Brothers’ immortalised fairy tale of Cinderella brings all the loved characters to life but slightly differently.

Here Cinderella has a stepfather, Don Magnifico, a comic tour de force. The Prince’s Valet is disguised as his master and Alidoro, a philosopher, takes the place of a fairy godmother.

This is Rossini at his finest and with soaring arias and tender melodies this comic opera is often regarded as Rossini’s most successful.
