Do you remember the story of Cinderella? Picked by Rossini in twenty four days only, the Cenerentola is, in spite of the failure of its creation in Rome in 1817, a delicious masterpiece where the screw comica never masks the emotion which appears.

Twenty years ago, Cecilia Bartoli took on the role of Cenerentola / Cinderella in the eponymous work by Rossini at the Zurich Opera. Immediately, his incarnation, alternately fiery, tender, dazzling, mutinous and imperious, made this spectacle a cult performance of the most famous Swiss opera house.

On 29 October at 3 p.m., 31 October and 02, 04 November 2017, at 8 p.m. starring Cecilia Bartoli and Les Musiciens du Prince, La Cenerentola is a coproduction with the Monte Carlo Opera. You are prommissed an unforgettable evening, for this Cinderella became Princess of the Lyric …
