Leeds Grand Theatre

46 New Briggate, Leeds, West Yorkshire, LS1 6NZ

Forget fairy godmothers, pumpkins and glass slippers, Rossini's version of Cinderella (La Cenerentola) is an unabashedly romantic comedy without any of the usual trappings associated with this much-loved fairy tale.

In Cinderella, the composer combines his genius for serious and comic opera. Bringing his comic characters to life in this lively production are Quirijn de Lang (Kiss Me, Kate, The Marriage of Figaro), who sings the Prince's servant Dandini, and Henry Waddington (The Marriage of Figaro) as Cinderella's stepfather, Don Magnifico.

While this pair are undoubtedly some of Rossini's finest comic creations, Angelina (Canadian mezzo-soprano Wallis Giunta) and her prince Ramiro (South African tenor Sunnyboy Dladla) eschew comedy for romance, as Cinderella's transformation into a queen-in-waiting is achieved not through magic but through the power of music. Sung in Italian with English titles.
