    La Cenerentola is Rossini's exquisite opera based on the classic fairytale Cinderella. The story follows the kind and gentle Angelina, forced to live a life of drudgery by her vain and vacuous step-family. When it is announced that the Prince, Don Ramiro, is seeking a bride, Angelina has the chance to free herself. Rossini's retelling is more grounded than many versions, but no less magical and romantic.

    This ambitious production, the 2020 CUOS Mainshow, places the story in 1950s Rome, inspired by the classic Hollywood romance starring Audrey Hepburn, Roman Holiday. Beautiful sets and costumes evoking the Eternal City combine with Cambridge's finest singers and musicians to create a breathtaking night of opera.
