LA CENERENTOLA

David Radok’s charming production of Rossini’s Cinderella is returning after a break of several years, with new singers cast in almost all of the roles.

Madcap feast, triumph of the clowns!
– Göteborgs-Posten (2003)

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.
