Live Performance Broadcast
Sung in: French
Laurent Pelly’s storybook staging of Massenet’s Cendrillon is presented with an all-new English translation in an abridged 90-minute adaptation, with mezzo-soprano Isabel Leonard as its rags-to-riches princess. Maestro Emmanuel Villaume leads a delightful cast, which includes mezzo-soprano Emily D’Angelo as Cinderella’s Prince Charming, soprano Jessica Pratt as her Fairy Godmother, and mezzo-soprano Stephanie Blythe and bass-baritone Laurent Naouri as her feuding guardians.
Please join us for a complimentary pre-opera lecture in The Paramount Theater Auditorium at 12:00PM. The lecture for Cinderella will be conducted by Mary Ann Archer, flutist, formerly with the Metropolitan Opera Orchestra for 26 years. Now also a spiritual director and author of “Shared Imagination,” a book on meditation, and “Zeesha’s Tale,” an illustrated children’s book on three donkeys in the Bible.
