Last year, BTSCelebs reviewed “Cinderella” on Broadway in Chicago, and I absolutely adored it!

Tomorrow, Lyric Opera debuts Gioachino Rossini’s version of the timeless tale of a mistreated young woman who eventually meets a Prince and lives happily ever after. Stars Isabel Leonard and Lawrence Brownlee take on the iconic roles of the Cinderella and the Prince.

In an official press release, Lyric’s general director, Anthony Freud, shared his impression of the retelling of the classic, “This production is zany and slightly surreal, but accessible and entertaining. It’s a fairytale environment with primary colors and a witty, quirky design, very Spanish in its aesthetic.”

Alessandro Corbelli, Vito Priante, Christian Van Horn join a host of other talented opera singers and actors in this revamped version of “Cinderella”.

I sincerely hope Rossini’s tale is just as great as the beloved Rodgers and Hammerstein’s version.
