Italian Opera - LA CENERENTOLA

Alliance Française de Toronto

La Cenerentola, ossia La bontà in trionfo (Cinderella or Goodness Triumphant).
Is an operatic dramma giocoso in two acts by Gioachino Rossini. The libretto was written by Jacopo Ferretti, based on the fairy tale Cendrillon by Charles Perrault. The opera was first performed in Rome's Teatro Valle on January 25, 1817. Rossini composed La Cenerentola when he was 25 years old, following the success of The Barber of Seville the year before. La Cenerentola, which he completed in a period of three weeks, is considered to have some of his finest writing for solo voice and ensembles.
