What the critics are saying
‘The French mezzo-soprano Alix Le Saux makes an engagingly spirited heroine – her soft-grained timbre blending beautifully with that of Eléonore Pancrazi as the prince in their palpitating love duets.’
‘Caroline Wettergreen is near perfection as the Fairy, casting a spell over the audience with her top notes light as thistledown.’
‘…Caroline Wettergreen illuminated the stage with a dazzling display of singing.’
‘The atmosphere of the production is faithful to Perrault’s dark vision, and the musical direction, under the rising star Duncan Ward, is well nigh faultless’.
‘Fiona Shaw directed an unforgettable Rape of Lucretia for Glyndebourne five years ago; this Cendrillon is in that league.’
