Lyric Opera of Chicago: Cinderella

A bright and whimsical production by Spanish director Joan Font and his performance troupe Els Comediants.

The beloved tale of Cinderella (La Cenerentola) meets operatic delight in this bubbling Rossini hit! You know the story: Cinderella is dressed in rags and destined to toil away for her nasty stepsisters and horrible stepfather –who is scheming to convince the Prince to marry one of his “real” daughters. But not so fast, ladies –mean girls aren’t the Prince’s style, and there’s a happily-ever-after ending for the maid with the heart of gold in this triumphant, dazzling production… that blends a riot of color with sophisticated comedy just oozing with mirth (Houston Chronicle.)

Superstar mezzo-soprano Isabel Leonard partners with bel canto master Lawrence Brownlee in his eagerly awaited Lyric debut as he sings with freedom and fervor…a reminder of the infectious excitement Rossini makes possible (The New York Times) and acclaimed Lyric favorite Alessandro Corbelli as the pompous stepfather.


Performance running time: 3 hours 16 minutes including 1 intermission. In Italian with projected English titles.
