Cendrillon Opera (Cinderella)

A new-to-Chicago production and a Lyric premiere. Opera will be sung in French.

“Massenet adapted Cinderella with an irresistible blend of wit, sensitivity, and elegance. The love duets are the very essence of romance, but there’s hilarity, too, thanks to the most outrageous of all stepmothers. And if you want to hear glittering top notes sail into the stratosphere, there’s the vocally high-flying fairy godmother. At the heart of Cendrillon is the delectable heroine—and when she sings to her beloved, “You are my Prince Charming,” it’s truly magical!”
