It is impossible to deny the magic of Cinderella’s rags-to- riches fairy tale, especially Rossini’s enchanting retelling of this familiar favourite. Enjoy an evening of comedy, mistaken identity, and a few other surprises in the hands of director Rob Herriot (2012’s The Mikado, 2015’s The Magic Flute), whose blend of 1950s youthful exuberance and haute couture will bring you Cinderella as you’ve never imagined in a newly designed production. We are especially delighted to present Rossini’s bel canto opera in its 200th anniversary year. Consider this letter your invitation to the ball and come see why the heroine of Rossini’s Cinderella is not one to be underestimated.
