Opera de Paris: Cinderella

Opera de Paris: Cinderella

Opera de Paris: Cinderella

Jules Massenet no doubt sought to enchant his era when he set Perrault’s beloved fairy tale to music, offering us one of his most attractive works, quite unlike other operatic adaptations of the tale.

In this new staging, Mariame Clément plays on the myth’s fantasy side, reflecting on the characters’ inner selves whilst setting them free from their tight suits and court shoes. The mythical couple of Cinderella and Prince Charming will be sung by mezzo-sopranos Tara Arraught and Anna Stéphany in their Paris Opera debuts, soprano Kathleen Kim is The Fairy Godmother, Daniela Barcellona is Madame de La Haltière and Lionel Lhote is Pandolfe. Carlo Rizzi conducts.
