An adaptation of the Cinderella story. The story is the familiar fairy tale but with the fairy element left out. In place of the fairy godmother, we have Alidoro, a philosophic person and friend of the Prince. The glass slipper is replaced with a pair of bracelets. One of these bracelets is given to the Prince at the ball and recognition of the other leads to the customary happy ending

So einzigartig wie die formale Gestaltung des Werks, so extrem sind die Anforderungen an seine Interpreten: Es bedarf zweier gestandener Liedsänger, die im Zusammenwirken mit dem riesigen Orchesterapparat ebenso als Solisten hervortreten, wie sie sich als konzertierende Stimmen in das symphonische Gefüge mit einzuordnen vermögen. Es bedarf eines ausgezeichneten, bestens aufeinander abgestimmten Klangkörpers, und natürlich einer Dirigentenpersönlichkeit, die für Zusammenhalt sorgt und der Großform Geist und Beseeltheit verleiht. Alle diese Parameter fügten sich bei Konzerten zusammen, die am 25. und 26. Januar 2018 im Herkulessaal der Münchener Residenz aufgezeichnet wurden und nun bereits als CD bei BR Klassik veröffentlicht werden
