When young Angelina momentarily escapes her ungrateful stepfamily to attend a royal ball in disguise, she meets Prince Ramiro, who vows to find her after she disappears into the night. Beautiful melodies, sparkling vocals, and Rossini’s energetic score weave this timeless Cinderella story, dispensing with the fairy dust for the wisdom of the human heart. Elegant and heartfelt, this opera is one where goodness triumphs, and patience is rewarded with satisfying joy.
