A fairytale love

Why See Houston Grand Opera - Cinderella?

Classical & Opera

The classic fairytale

Cinderella is transported to Italy in Rossini's celebrated opera. Also known as La Cenerentola, this tragi-comic adaptation is considered to bear some of the finest writing for solo voices and ensembles. Presented by the Houston Grand Opera as part of the company's 20/21 season, enjoy the HGO debut of Emily D'Angelo as she stars as the maid Angelique in this heart-warming tale of true love and kindness that will enchant all ages.

What is the story of Cinderella?

Angelique (the Cinderella of our tale) spends her life working as a put-upon maid for tyrannical stepfather Don Magnifico and his social-climbing stepdaughters. When an old beggar knocks at the door, their lives are changed forever, for despite appearances, he's a palace envoy in disguise, and he's on the search for a bride for handsome Prince Ramiro when Cinderella catches his eye. When she shows him kindness unheard of, an invitation to a glittering ball at the palace follows not long after. Setting out into the night, she has no idea that she's heading for the adventure of a lifetime.

A little different from Disney's well-known adaptation, this opera follows the traditional tale, which dates back to 1697, but can trace its roots as far back as ancient Egypt!
