Why See Virginia Opera - Cinderella?

Classical & Opera

You Shall Go To The Ball

Virginia Opera invite you to experience the romantic, visual feast of Cinderella. With delightfully colorful sets and costumes, this glorious opera bubbles over with enchantment and joy, breathing new life into the beloved story. Zany and bright, it sparkles with wit and cleverness, with Rossini's lush score spiraling through this exciting, family-friendly imagining of the world's favorite fairytale


Cinderella spends her life working as a put-upon maid for tyrannical stepfather Don Magnifico and his social-climbing stepdaughters. When an old beggar knocks at the door, their lives are changed forever, for despite appearances, he's a palace envoy in disguise, and he's on the search for a bride for handsome Prince Ramiro when Cinderella catches his eye. When she shows him kindness unheard of, an invitation to a glittering ball at the palace follows not long after. Setting out into the night, she has no idea that she's heading for the adventure of a lifetime.

A little different from Disney's well-known adaptation, this opera follows the traditional tale, which dates back to 1697, but can trace its roots as far back as ancient Egypt!
