A true fairytale performance

La Cenerentola was exquisite. By the time the orchestra had started the sinfonia, i was entranced. The maestro directed with an ease that was in such contrast to the choppy and hurried music that Rossini composed for this opera. All of the singers were incredible, and particularly impeccable was the mezzo playing the lead. This was the first time I had seen her perform, and she was great. Her voice was sweet and effortless, and her runs were unrivaled. She almost looked as if she was mouthing along to a recording, as she sang with such ease and comfort. The step sisters, step father and valet were all amusing and naturally comical. The prince was charming and believable. The all male chorus had great musicality and were characters to be watched, not just heard. The stage was larger than life and worked beautifully with the story. This version of the classic Cinderella tale was refreshing and well worth the price. I hope the Met will expand the broadcasts to include their entire season.
