Synopsis‘Before the carnival is over, all Rome will love my Cinderella…” Thus spoke Rossini in 1817, in the aftermath of the disastrous opening night, firmly convinced that his pumpkin would be transformed into a sumptuous carriage. The future was to prove him right. However, in moving from Perrault’s tale to the opera, the humble servant who dreams of going to the ball has lost all her magical attributes: there is no fairy godmother to wave her wand and it is not a fur slipper but a bracelet that the beauty leaves behind for her prince, as a deliberate challenge to find her again. Guillaume Gallienne, member of the Comédie-Française, stages his first opera.
