2700 F Street, NW Washington
A perfect springtime treat, Washington National Opera's Cinderella pops up with a few unexpected twists to the beloved fairy tale and several debuts on the Kennedy Center Opera House stage. Rossini's popular retelling of Cinderella transforms the glass slippers into bracelets and the fairy godmother into a philosophical tutor, yet it's the same enchanting tale blossoming with rainbow-bright costumes and a rags-to-riches ending that celebrates the power of love and forgiveness. And rotating in the lead role of Angelina is American mezzo-soprano and 2013 Richard Tucker Award winner Isabel Leonard and celebrated Irish mezzo-soprano Tara Erraught in her U.S. debut. Gifted conductor Speranza Scappucci also makes her WNO debut.
