The Prince of Salerno, Don Ramiro, changes places with his valet, Dandini, and then meets the girl of his dreams - Cenerentola. Meanwhile, Cenerentola's stepsisters, Clorinda and Tisbe, fawn over the fake prince (Dandini). When Cenerentola is left alone, weeping, the Philosopher, Alidoro, takes her (dressed in beautiful clothing) to the palace, where she is an immediate hit with everyone - including Dandini. Confusion reigns when the identity of the real Prince is revealed. Written by David McAnally <>

A fun production!
19 December 1999 | by (Brisbane, Queensland, Australia) – See all my reviews

Set in the late 1700's, this production is a combination of opera and pantomime farce. These pantomime aspects include comical costumes for Cenerentola's two stepsisters, Clorinda and Tisbe

  • and for the courtiers during their wine cellar scene

with Don Magnifico. Some of the interactions, between the characters, are 'played for laughs'. The singing is good, and the Prince and his Cinderella make a cute couple. A fun production!
