Glyndebourne is delighted to welcome back actor-director Fiona Shaw to direct the company’s first-ever staging of Cendrillon. With its combination of enchanting love story and broad, burlesque comedy, Cendrillon sits alongside Rossini’s Cenerentola, Dvorak’s Rusalka and Humperdinck’s Hansel und Gretel as one of the great operatic fairytales – a Cinderella that looks back to Charles Perrault’s original story in all its richness and ambiguity.
Glyndebourne Tour is renowned for championing new talent, a tradition which continues in the casting of Cendrillon. Taking the roles of Cendrillon and Le Prince Charmant are French mezzo-sopranos Alix Le Saux and Eléonore Pancrazi. Alix makes her Glyndebourne debut, while Eléonore returns after competing as a finalist in the inaugural Glyndebourne Opera Cup.
In Festival 2019, Cendrillon will be conducted by John Wilson with Danielle de Niese in the title role.
If you are interested in supporting this production, we would love to talk to you.
