Rossini’s Cinderella

Based on the tale of Cinderella, Rossini’s La Cenerentola (Cinderella) eschews the classic’s magical elements for a more earthbound story of uplifting love. Many of the details are familiar: a young lady lorded over by her cruel stepsisters, a fortuitous palace ball, and a dashing prince. The fairy godmother, however, gives up her role to a wizened old philosopher, and a pair of telltale bracelets replaces the iconic glass slipper. Dotting the score of octave-shattering arias are playful ensemble pieces with tongue-twisting lyrics.

Opera Roanoke

When you're starting an opera company, it's a good idea to bring in advisors who know what they're talking—and singing—about. Opera Roanoke did exactly that when they enlisted Metropolitan Opera stars Eleanor Steber and Irene Dalis as mentors in the company's first years. With their guidance, the group gained greater artistic acclaim, and soon began staging renowned works including La Boheme, Madame Butterfly, and Beethoven's Fidelio. Today, the opera continues to produce stirring masterworks featuring acclaimed performers, lavish sets, and remarkably tuneful conversations.
