A magically entertaining work, Rossini’s version of the Cinderella folk tale features neither pumpkin nor glass slipper. Don Ramiro the prince (Argentinean tenor Juan Francisco Gatell) changes identities with his servant (Vito Priante) in the hopes of finding a girl who likes him simply for himself. Italian mezzo-soprano Serena Malfi stars as Angelina (Cenerentola). Emma Dante's innovative production is brimming with talent.

Opera Roma

Taking its current name at the advent of the republic, Rome’s beautiful opera house, Teatro dell’Opera di Roma was first inaugurated in 1880, as Teatro Costanzi. This iconic venue hosted the world premiere of Mascagni’s Cavalleria Rusticana and Puccini’s Tosca among others.
