La Cenerentola: Welsh National Opera
Rossini’s delightful retelling of Cinderella but with a few twists along the way.
The kind-hearted Angelina (Cinderella) is forced to scrub the floors by her wicked stepfather, while her ugly sisters prepare to go to the Prince’s grand ball at the palace. As she dreams of a better life she is visited by a mysterious old beggar man. He tells her she will go to the ball, and will also be rewarded for her kind heart. Will she live happily ever after?
WNO transports you into a candy-coloured world of fairy tale full of wit, larger than life characters, delightful mice and vibrant costumes.
Tomáš Hanus conducts Rossini’s sparkling score, as we watch La Cenerentola transform from rags to riches through the power of music.
Please note, this performance will be sung in Italian, with English surtitles.
Founded in Cardiff in 1943, WNO exists to produce, perform and tour thrilling and entertaining world-class opera. The Company has always provided a mix of traditional and less-well-known operas, including those of Alban Berg, Richard Strauss, Leoš Janá?ek and Benjamin Britten.
The opera company consists of a professional orchestra (The Orchestra of Welsh National Opera) and a professional choir (The Chorus of Welsh National Opera. The orchestra and the choir often perform at St David's Hall in Cardiff and at other venues throughout Wales.
