Seattle Opera Opening Performance

By Gioachino Rossini
Brisk, catchy, and highly entertaining, Rossini’s uniquely Italian retelling of the ultimate rags-to-riches story cleverly blends tenderness and frivolity to fabulous effect. Kicking off with a first class overture, the comedic love story sails through flowery ensembles, ridiculous situations, and a lovely cavatina or two en route to a fairy tale finale. La Cenerentola’s toe-tapping tunes, colorful characters, and splendid orchestration are sure to brighten your winter.
In Italian with English subtitles.
