Cendrillion 2019

£25.00

Comedy and near-tragedy are finely blended in Cendrillon in some of the most beautiful music Massenet – king of Paris’s Opéra Comique – ever wrote. His magical take on the familiar Cinderella story is a sensuous, Belle Époque fairy tale gilded with lavish orchestral textures and glittering, virtuosic vocal writing.
