Rossini's La Cenerentola
A peerless pair of Rossini virtuosos joins forces in La Cenerentola—a vocal tour de force for mezzo-soprano Joyce DiDonato, singing her first Met performances of the Cinderella title role, and the high-flying tenor Juan Diego Flórez, as her Prince Charming. Alessandro Corbelli and Luca Pisaroni complete the cast, with Met Principal Conductor Fabio Luisi leading the effervescent score. In Italian with English subtitles. (Approx 3hrs 20mins, inc interval.
“The Metropolitan Opera has a dazzling, plucky and endearingly poignant Cinderella in the superb American mezzo-soprano Joyce DiDonato, who triumphed Monday night. She sang with impish glee, dispatching virtuosic runs and turns, leaping from her chesty low register to gleaming high notes. Fabio Luisi drew a crisp and stylish performance from the orchestra.” – The New York Times
“Joyce DiDonato exuded purity and sweetness in the title role. She sang with casual brilliance and bravado, especially as the ornate line ascended. Fabio Luisi, the Met’s principal conductor, managed to enforce verve and style, even elegance in the pit.” – Financial Times
