A Cendrillon Unknow Of To Me

Post by lennygoran » Wed Nov 29, 2017 7:26 am

MSM Opera Theater presents Cendrillon

MSM Opera Theater presents a rare production of composer Nicolo Isouard's Cendrillon (libretto by Charles-Guillame Étienne), conducted by Pierre Vallet and directed by MSM Opera Theater Artistic Director Dona D. Vaughn. The work, which will be performed in French with English dialogue, is based on Charles Perrault’s fairy tale, Cinderella. The MSM production represents another in a series of notable but rarely produced French operas from the School, whose “opera offerings are often the most intriguing of any New York conservatory,” according to Zachary Woolfe (The New York Times).

Unknown to me too. When I saw "Cendrillon" I thought Massenet, but the Manhattan School has again gone beyond the obvious.

Just be glad that no German composer ever set this (as far as I know). Cinderella, Cenrillon, and Cenerentola are all mellifluous words, but in Germany she is Aschenputel.

There's nothing remarkable about it. All one has to do is hit the right keys at the right time and the instrument plays itself.
-- Johann Sebastian Bach

I thought it was Aschenbrödel. Johann Strauss composed a Cinderella ballet with that title. There may be operas too, I don't know, but I've seen the German title used for German performances and recordings of Rossini and Prokofiev.
