A filmed performance of Rossini's La Cenerentola, a witty and vivacious adaptation of the Cinderella story. The opera, written in 24 days, was first performed in Rome in 1817. 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.
