The Merola Opera Program presents Rossini's La Cenerentola (performed in Italian with English supertitles). In Rossini's warmhearted retelling of the Cinderella story, the evil stepmother has become a wicked stepfather, the fairy godmother a philosopher, and the slipper has been swapped for a bracelet. Goodness and kindness triumph and melody reigns supreme.
Mark Morash, conductor
Chuck Hudson, director
Samantha Hankey, as Angelina (Cenerentola)
