Rossini – LA CENERENTOLA

If you thought you knew the story of Cinderella, then you are in for a delightful surprise with this CENERENTOLA from the Opéra de Lille. Here, the evil stepmother has become a wicked stepfather, the fairy a philosopher and the slipper has been swapped for a bracelet.

 

Nonetheless, a magical transformation remains at the heart of this story; the transformation of the heroine from rags to riches.

Twentieth opera of a 25-year-old composer, Rossini’s LA CENERENTOLA is defined by the idealism of youth. It is a comedy of errors, or of ideal love; the nobility of the heart and goodness overcome appearances, which for sure cannot be trusted.

Better-known for this work in theatre, director Jean Bellorini sets out to create, in his words, “a fantasy where all that is simple, poor and bare is able to join the grand ballroom of dreams and kiss the stars.” With doses of colour, dreams, poetry in equal measure, the world he creates on stage is a delicate balance “at the cross-roads of the magic of a fairy-story and of the cinema.” In an unusual landscape awash with bikes and propellers, run through with gangways and umbrellas, where, even under the cinders, the joyous vivacity of Rossini burns full beam.
