SummaryJoin Theodore Deacon for a preview lecture of Rossini’s Cinderella.
DescriptionInspired by Charles Dickens and the cheeky “panto” shows enjoyed in English music halls, director Lindy Hume sets this beloved fairy tale in and around a Victorian emporium. With stunning period costumes, elaborate multi-level sets, and delightfully unexpected twists, Hume shines a light on the gleaming potential for goodness in a dark world.

Rossini's virtuosic bel canto score features show-stopping vocal fireworks from start to finish. Audience favorite Ginger Costa-Jackson (Carmen in our 2019 Carmen) returns as Cinderella, alternating with Canadian mezzo soprano Wallis Giunta.
