With it's combination of enchanting love story and broad, burlesque comedy, Cendrillon is one of the great operatic fairy tales - a Cinderella that looks back to Charles Perrault's original story in all it's richness and ambiguity. Massenet's sensuous Belle Epoque fairy tale is gilded with lavish orchestral textures and glittering vocal writing, drawing on everything from baroque dances to Wagner-inspired chromaticism to bring it's story to colorful life, conjuring a world of infinite musical and emotional variety. Fiona Shaw's original Tour production makes it's Festival debut here, re-directed by Fiona Dunn and conducted by John Wilson, with a cast led by Glyndebourne favorites Danielle de Niese as Cendrillon and Kate Lindsey as her Prince. The Times called this production "a savvy modern-day makeover," while Classical Source called it "enchanting and thought-provoking."
