Music by Jules Massenet
Note to Cinderella's
good can be great.
One of the greatest fairy tales comes to life in Opera for the Young's adapatation of Massenet's "Cinderella".
Far beyond a story of a poor girl being saved by a prince, Opera for the Young's version focuses on lovely girl who transforms her own life through inner strength, and she teaches her step-family that the rewards for being a good person can be great!
A well-known story and a lush score takes young audiences on a magical journey to a far off place. As in all Opera for the Young productions, children are central to the action by taking on the roles of the mouse chorus, horses, nobles, a King and Queen. in additon, Cinderella's step-sisters are embodied by music teachers, gym teachers, principals, or even local tv personalities. They are all joined on stage by Opera for the Young's wonderful professional musicians.
