Kate Lindsey sings the title role in Rossini's LA CENERENTOLA (Cinderella).

In her impoverished stepfather's castle, a kindhearted girl dreams of escaping the tyranny of her vain stepsisters. When the prince announces that he will choose his bride at a glamorous ball, she seizes the opportunity to take control of her own destiny.

Rossini's warmhearted retelling of the Cinderella story is a delightfully romantic comedy, brought to life by the dazzling vocal fireworks of an exciting young cast. James Conlon conducts. Saturday, August 17, 1 to 4 pm.
