Abbado’s Cenerentola is set in a modern, realistic time.
Quoting the director’s own words, the ”emptiness of the stage leaves room for creativity, as the characters keep on changing and disguising their true identity. I have stuck to Rossini’s original notes while neglecting all the legends
Read more linked to the character of Cinderella”. We all know that Rossini and librettist Jacopo Ferretti in fact had gone a long way from Perrault’s fairy tale.
In the rather empty, bare stage the few scenographic elements strike the attention: the colorful costumes, the two giant chandeliers, the 1970’s kitchen.
The singers are young, talented and with very good acting skills.
Evelino Pidň conducts with a light, energetic touch that well suit the entire production. Read less
