Note to Cinderella's

stepsisters:

The rewards for being

good can be great.

One of the greatest fairy tales comes to life in Opera for the Young's adapatation of Massenet's "Cinderella".

Far beyond a story of a poor girl being saved by a prince, Opera for the Young's version focuses on lovely girl who transforms her own life through inner strength, and she teaches her step-family that the rewards for being a good person can be great!

A well-known story and a lush score takes young audiences on a magical journey to a far off place. As in all Opera for the Young productions, children are central to the action by taking on the roles of the mouse chorus, horses, nobles, a King and Queen. in additon, Cinderella's step-sisters are embodied by music teachers, gym teachers, principals, or even local tv personalities. They are all joined on stage by Opera for the Young's wonderful professional musicians.
