Over the centuries, the story of Cinderella and her cruel stepmother and ugly stepsisters has been interpreted in countless ways across different genres. Gioachino Rossini’s La Cenerentola is perhaps the most famous operatic version of the Cinderella story, and it is like no other interpretation. This opera has no fairy godmother, no pumpkin that turns into a carriage, and no glass slipper. However, unlike most other operas, it has a happy ending. La Cenerentola airs for SundayArts August 23rd at noon.

    Having just seen Rossini’s La Cenerentola per your telecast 8/23 it weould be nice to know the names of the singers, etc
    that pasrticipated in this interesting and musically arresting performance. If you could slow down the credits other than Peter Gelb it might also help.

    It was a wonderful performance. Who are the artists? The credits at the end went by too quickly for me to catch the names.

    I love your productions but I agree with the viewers above: the credits go by too quickly for us to catch the names of the artists.
    Unfortunately, this is not the only time this has happened.

    The performance was excellent and lots of fun. I was particularly excited to see Lawrence Brownlee in the role of the Prince. Having watched opera on thirteen over the years, it was great to see a brillant African American tenor in a major role. Bravo!!

    let me join the three out of four viewers who could not read the names
    of the principal performers of the 8/23 opera .the fourth recognized
    mr.brownleefrom earlier performances,rather than the credit list,i believe. it is sad seeing such sloppiness on the part of a major broadcaster.
