Forget the fairy godmother and glimmering glass slipper … this comedic turn on the cinder-tending heroine of the classic folktale features Cenerentola (“chen-a-REN-to-lah”), as Cinderella is known in Italian. Desperate for something more fulfilling than daily hearth duty for her privileged step-sisters, Rossini’s Cenerentola finds herself in disguise at a palace ball after falling in love-at-first-sight with the Prince’s valet. But the night has many twists in store for Cenerentola when she discovers she’s not the only one at the party in disguise — and not the only one madly in love.

Cinderella will be sung in Italian with English translations projected above the stage. Maestro Lipton will lead an international cast along with the Opera Tampa Orchestra and Chorus.
