Opera Guide: La Cenerentola

Among the features of this guide to La Cenerentola, Philip Gossett throws new light on the remarkable story of the opera’s composition, while Colin Graham, ENO producer, argues that it is the most sympathetic of all Rossini’s comic masterpieces, and Mark Elder, ENO Music Director, shows how Rossini’s musical style is exceptionally well suited to this enchanting story.
