Laurent Pelly’s storybook staging of Massenet’s Cendrillon is presented with an all-new abridged 90-minute adaptation, with mezzo-soprano Isabel Leonard as its rags-to-riches princess.
Maestro Emmanuel Villaume leads a delightful cast, which includes mezzo-soprano Emily D’Angelo as Cinderella’s Prince Charming, soprano Jessica Pratt as her Fairy Godmother, and mezzo-soprano Stephanie Blythe and bass-baritone Laurent Naouri as her feuding guardians.
