Presented by VICTORIAN OPERA
Directed by Libby Hill
Composed by Jules Massenet
Shakira will perform the role of Dorothée in the Melbourne Season and Dorothée and Madame de la Haltière in the Regional Victorian Tour.
A young girl Cendrillon (Cinderella) is treated like a servant by her selfish stepmother and two stepsisters. When The Fairy Godmother magically transforms Cendrillon, she secretly attends the Royal Ball but leaves her glass slipper behind. The prince, desperate to find this mysterious beauty, searches the kingdom.
With its whimsical nature and beautiful music, Cinderella is a perfect introduction for children to the spellbinding world of opera. Based on the much loved fairytale, this rare 19th century work will be presented as a specially reduced one hour version.
