Jules Massenet, abridged English-language version by Kelley Rourke
1 hour, 47 minutes with no intermission
Laurent Pelly’s storybook staging of Massenet’s Cendrillon is presented with an all-new English translation in an abridged 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 guardians.
