Music: Jules Massenet Libretto: Henri Caïn

Inspired by: The Cinderella Fairy Tale What the critics sayThe work includes many moments in which Massenet is at his best and most widely accessible, from the pageantry and glowing musical nostalgia for the French baroque in the course scenes to the otherworldliness of the love music to the wit and humor that permeate the work as a whole. --Broadway World’s Opera News Desk

Synopsis: A young woman of unmatched grace and goodness overcomes the abuse of her stepfamily and, with the help of a fairy godmother, wins the heart of a prince and lives happily ever. In his rendition of one of the world’s most beloved fairy tales, Jules Massenet infuses his opera with comedy, romance, wistfulness, amid a royal palace and an enchanted forest.
