La Monnaie - Cendrillon
La Monnaie ¦ Opera ¦ Cendrillon ¦ Intro


Since their publication in 1697, Perrault’s Tales of Mother Goose have continued to inspire playwrights and opera composers. One of them, Cinderella, particularly appeals to the imagination because it deals with the sometimes complex relationships within a non-traditional family in a way that is both playful and magical. Cendrillon is a thrilling work alive with drama, humour and even a touch of bitter sarcasm. It is presented here with a double casting for the title role (soprano and mezzo) as well as for the role of the Prince (mezzo and tenor). Shortly after Werther and Don Quichotte, La Monnaie explores a third opera by Massenet. French stage director Laurent Pelly, who staged Don Quichotte two seasons ago, gives shape to this sparkling work, conducted by Alain Altinoglu in his debut at La Monnaie.
