Cendrillon, or the Tale of Cinderella
J.Massenet

Opera-féerie in three acts

Performed in French with Russian subtitles

Libretto by Henri Cain, based on Charles Perrault’s fairy-tale

Musical and stage version of the Perm Opera and Ballet Theatre

The opera was written in 1899. This version was first performed in Perm in 2007. Running time: 2 hours 40 minutes including 2 intervals

The Perm Opera and Ballet Theatre is the first theatre in Russia to stage this infrequently performed opera by Jules Massenet. Seasoned music-lovers have the rare opportunity of listening to an elegant, unknown score by the composer of Werther, and the eternal theme of the transformation of the poor hard-working orphan into a beautiful princess will appeal to those who enjoy romantic stories. 

The production features many surprises and unusual characters: the Fairy rides onto the stage on a pony made up to look like the magical Unicorn, and sweet ‘trained’ live chickens accompany the little elves throughout the first act.
