Complete with a murderously wicked stepfather and astonishingly virtuosic vocal parts for Angelina – Cinderella – and the Prince Ramiro, Rossini’s opera is on the face of it a vivacious and joyful retelling of the Cinderella story.
However beneath the wholesome moral triumph of goodness and kindness lurks a more biting commentary on status and desire.
