The enchanting fairytale of Cinderella has delighted readers and audiences over the ages. Set in Italy in the 18th century, Rossini’s operatic version brings you a Cinderella story with a comedic twist. There’s no fairy godmother, no pumpkin that turns into a carriage, and no glass slipper – yet this Cinderella is still the timeless tale of the triumph of goodness over cruelty that you know and love. From the composer who brought you the entertaining antics in The Barber of Seville comes another hilarious opera full of toe-tapping tunes, colorful characters and splendid orchestration. Let Rossini’s sparkling music and brilliant romantic comedy enchant you in this debut production by Pensacola Opera.
