Stanley Opera's production of Rossini's Cinderella (La Cenerentola).
This new production, written by Stanley Opera, is in a humorous modern English translation by the top British librettist Amanda Holden. The story follows the much-loved tale of Cinderella, ill-treated by her two step-sisters and forced to work as a kitchen maid in the household of her step-father Don Magnifico. When a mysterious beggar arrives on their doorstep, Cinderella is the only one to show him kindness. When another young man arrives, no-one in the house realises that he is Ramiro, the Prince Charming of Rossini's story. He, however, is utterly charmed by the beautiful and tender-hearted kitchen maid...
