The classic Cinderella story, with a human touch. Without a fairy godmother or pumpkin coach, our heroine has to depend entirely on true love and the kindness of others to make her dreams come true – the exact opposite of what she gets at home.
In Rossini’s captivating retelling of the tale, the next generation of opera stars perform on stage right at the beginning of their professional careers, as part of British Youth Opera’s 2019 summer season. With Southbank Sinfonia.
