A much-loved fairy tale but not quite as you know it
Opera North: Cinderella

Opera North: Cinderella

Tickets Free

Cinderella – Gioachino Rossini
La Cenerentola

A much-loved fairy tale but not quite as you know it. Cinderella dreams of a better life as she scrubs the floor of the school of dance. The prince arrives seeking a companion and so this sparkling romcom goes…. An evening of pure magic is in store uniting the fun, fire and brilliance of Rossini’s music with a fresh and witty production. With fabulous frocks and dance woven into the very music of this opera, Cinderella prescribes a healthy dose of entertainment to cure those winter blues.

Sung in Italian with English titles
Supported by a generous gift from The Liz and Terry Bramall Foundation

‘exemplary… effervescent… profoundly good fun… a wonderfully entertaining production. After it finished, members of the audience practically floated out of the theatre'

British Theatre Guide

‘Pure musical magic’

Huddersfield Examiner

‘a sparkling new Opera North production that’s as much for dance fans as opera buffs… the climax of a season of pure enchantment… the grand finale gains strength from the introduction of two exceptional new faces… pops the cork on a successful season like a champagne bottle that has been shaken for a very long time’

The Guardian
