La Cenerentola

Gioacchino Rossini (1792-1868)

25, 28, 31 October 2014

In 2014, all Shortwork Operas will be performed in Whites Hotel. This is a 5 min walk from Wexford Opera House.

Sung in Italian

Cinderella, the English form of La Cenerentola, was composed in 1817, a year after The Barber of Seville, and contains some of Rossini’s most dazzling vocal writing. The complete title, Cinderella, or Goodness Triumphant, suggests there is more to the story than a handsome prince seeking a beautiful bride. The prince’s bride is to be the kindest of them all as well as the fairest, so his tutor uses disguise in order to bring about the happy ending. Prince Ramiro and the ill-treated kind-hearted Cenerentola fall in love and marry, and Cenerentola repays her step-family’s cruelty with forgiveness.

Tickets: €25

The Festival Shortworks are made possible by the generous support of The Lord Magan of Castletown.
