The San Francisco Opera gives the beloved tale of Cinderella (La Cenerentola) a delightful operatic treatment in this bubbling Rossini hit, digitally recorded with multiple cameras and coming to the screen at the Torrance Cultural Arts Center. The story is a familiar one: Cinderella is forced to dress in rags and toil away for her nasty stepsisters and horrible stepfather -- who's scheming to convince the dashing prince to marry one of his "real" daughters. But mean girls aren't the prince's style, and there's a happily-ever-after ending for the fair maiden with the heart of gold in this dazzling production with just the right doses of humor and heart.
Approximate running time is three hours, including one intermission.
