La Cenerentola is an opera based on the traditional Cinderella story by the composer of The Barber of Seville, Gioachino Rossini. The Metropolitan Opera is bringing this music back to life as part of their 2019/2020 season. Conducted by the sensational James Gaffigan, mezzo-soprano rising star Tara Erraught takes on the title role and the incredible tenor Javier Camarena stars alongside her as Prince Charming.
Rossini wrote this opera when he was 25 years old, and completed it in just three weeks. The story very much so follows that of Disney's Cinderella, in that a young woman is treated unfairly by her own family until she catches the attention of a prince who sees her true value. This operatic version keeps to the roots of this children's fairytale and projects the beauty and touching story of a heroine's transformation.
