  Cinderella at The Kennedy Center


The Kennedy Center
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.

Gioachino Rossini’s comic opera, La Cenerentola, here titled Cinderella, is full of vibrantly-colored costumes, wild wigs, a thrilling gallop of a score, charming voices, and delightfully cavorting mice – well, giant-sized rats – but is it funny and family friendly? Stage Director Joan Font has indeed pulled out all the stops in choreographed scenes and comic business, but he has also somewhat darkened this fairy tale by making it all a story within a story.
