Musical, Program

For the first time ever, The Royal Opera presents the story of Cinderella as told in Massenet's opera Cendrillon. The production is by Laurent Pelly. Joyce DiDonato takes the title role, with Alice Coote as her Prince charming and Eglise GutiƩrrez plays the fairy godmother, in this version of a tale from the published fairytales of Frenchman Charles Perrault. Musical highlights include the fairy godmother's airy coloratura, the orchestral dances of the ball, the March of the Princesses, and of course rapturous duets between the Prince and cendrillon. French music specialist Bertrand de Billy is the conductor.
