Opera de Paris: LA CENERENTOLA18th August, 2017
New Production! César Award-winning filmmaker Guillaume Gallienne (Me Myself and Mum) will stage his first opera, with mezzo-soprano Teresa Iervolino in the title role. The Enlightenment had lit its fires throughout Europe, and Rossini’s version of Perrault’s tale of a humble servant who dreams of going to the ball is free of magic, and instead confronts the social divisions of the day to reveal the crinoline beneath the rags. Captured live at Palais Garnier Paris, 20 Jun 2017.
