La cenerentola by Gioacchino Rossini( Visual )

9 editions published between 2005 and 2008 in Italian and held by 311 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Glyndebourne Festival's new production for Gioachino Rossini's opera in 2005: now a classic! This is the story of Cinderella, of course, but also the story of Beauty And The Beast. In La Cenerentola, the fairy tales feed the story, although no fairy element remains. No glass slipper, no good fairy, no coach ... However, it is the true Cinderella, whom her stepfather ignores, and her stepsisters despise. She spends her time cleaning up the house in which she barely lives, and hopes one day she can escape through a love which would go beyond social status. Angelina's dream is not vain because, just as in Beauty And The Beast, the beauty of the heart is the first virtue, and the only one which can be victorious. Luckily, as ever in the opera buffa, the good wins over the bad. Maxim Mironov (Prince Ramiro) and Ruxandra Donose (Angelina, called "La Cenerentola"), are gathered on the Glyndebourne Festival's stage. The luxurious costumes by Moritz Junge and the excellent stage direction by Peter Hall made this production a highly successful one: since 2005, a few revivals of the performance have been given, notably at the Glyndebourne Festival itself (it appears in the 2012 programme of the festival). Here, under the baton of Vladimir Jurowski (music director of the festival since 2001), the London Philharmonic Orchestra gives a unique and very Rossini-like energy to the performance
