Glyndebourne Opera - La Cenerentola

Glyndebourne Opera - La Cenerentola

From the archive

This film was last shown on 22 June 2012

A revival of the 2005 Festival production Sung in Italian with English supertitles.

Rossini’s music has an irrepressible quality, bubbling up effortlessly throughout this retelling of the story of Cinderella. The invention is unstoppable, from Cenerentola’s plaintive song about a king who loves a poor girl to the lavish coloratura of her final aria when goodness triumphs and all ends, for some at any rate, happily ever after.

When this production, directed by Peter Hall, was first seen in 2005, Opera magazine credited it as ‘thoughtful, fresh and full of insight’ whilst for The Telegraph it ‘met the Glyndebourne gold standard’.

The young American Elizabeth DeShong will sing the role of Cenerentola (Angelina) and Chinese baritone Shenyang, Cardiff Singer of the World in 2007, will make his Glyndebourne debut La Cenerentola as Alidoro.
