LA CENERENTOLA

On 27 May the role of Dandini will be sung off-stage by Simone Alberghini, who has previously played the role at Metropolitan, Glyndebournefestivalen and Washington National Opera amongst others. Åke Zetterström will act Dandini’s part on stage. 

Opera in two acts by GIOACHINO ROSSINI (1792-1868) Libretto by JACOPO FERRETTI based on the fairy tale by Charles Perrault. Performed in Italian with Swedish surtitles.

For this production the title role will be played by Gaia Petrone, a young Italian mezzo-soprano whose international status has sky-rocketed partly in thanks to her acclaimed success as Cinderella at the Wiener Kammeroper. Her prince is young Russian tenor Sergey Romanovsky, who has specialised in Rossini’s ethereally high tenor sections.

The house soloists Åke Zetterström and Markus Schwartz guarantee great comic timing as ”the false prince” Dandini and Cinderella’s step-father Don Magnifico. This duo was a great success the last time we staged this production, while Mia Karlsson and Ann-Kristin Jones are new members of the cast, as the insufferably self-centred sisters.

Giancarlo Andretta is, as always, a welcome guest on our conductor’s podium. He will be responsible for ensuring that Rossini’s farcical merry-go-round is given the correct Italian spirit.
