The title role is now interpreted by Gaia Petrone, a young Italian mezzo-soprano whose international status has sky-rocketed. In fact, her acclaimed success as Cinderella, at the Wiener Kammeroper has contributed to this. Her prince is young Russian tenor Sergey Romanovsky, who has specialised in Rossini's almost ethereally high tenor sections. The house's soloists Åke Zetterström and Markus Schwartz guarantee great comic timing as "the false prince" Dandini and Cinderella's step-father Don Magnifico. The duo were a great success the last time this piece was staged, while Mia Karlsson and Ann-Kristin Jones are new members of the cast, as the insufferably self-centred sisters.

Giancarlo Andretta is always welcome as a guest on the conductor's podium and he is responsible for ensuring that Rossini's farcical merry-go-round is given the correct Italian spirit.
