Cendrillon, Opera Bastille, Paris: 23 March-28 April 2022

With Cendrillon, Jules Massanet offers us one of his most attractive works, quite unlike other operatic adaptations of Charles Perrault’s fairytale. Don't miss out and book your tickets now!

  • Cendrillon is one of Massenet's most charming works, a delicate comedy full of humour, poetry and magic. The composer displays an inexhaustible melodic vein and multiplies stylistic borrowings, from the Baroque to the fantastico-romantic, by way of Viennese classicism and Rossinian bel canto. Tarra Eraught and Anna Stephany make their Paris Opera debuts under the baton of Carlo Rizzi in this new production by Mariame Clément, who, after her enchanting Hänsel and Gretel in 2013, is once again exploring the world of the fairy tale.
