Listen: Minnesota Opera performs Rossini's 'La Cenerentola'

Gioachino Rossini’s operatic version of the Cinderella story may not have any enchanted mice or pumpkins, but there’s plenty of magic in the music. Cinderella (or La Cenerentola, in Italian) has silently suffered the abuse of her stepfather and stepsisters, but in true fairy tale fashion, her fate changes for the better and all is made right by the triumph of goodness over evil. Listen to Minnesota Opera’s 2010 performance from YourClassical MPR’s live broadcast with host Andrea Blaine now.
