Glyndebourne Live: Cinderella

Glyndebourne Live: Cinderella

Glyndebourne LIVE Cinderella (Cendrillon)With its combination of enchanting love story and broad, burlesque comedy, Cendrillon is one of the great operatic fairytales - a Cinderella that looks back to Charles Perraults original story in all its richness and ambiguity. Massenets sensuous, Belle Epoque fairytale is gilded with lavish orchestral textures and glittering vocal writing, drawing on everything from baroque dances to Wagner-inspired chromaticism to bring its story to colourful life, conjuring a world of infinite musical and emotional variety. Fiona Shaws production makes its Festival debut here conducted by John Wilson, with a cast led by Glyndebourne favourites Danielle de Niese as Cendrillon and Kate Lindsey as her Prince. Sunday 30th June 5.30 pm �12.50
