Jules Massenet’s fairy-tale opera Cendrillon (‘Cinderella’) was an immediate success at its premiere in 1899 at the Opéra-Comique in Paris. Massenet, then at the height of his powers, creates a magical sound-world full of wit, enchantment and perfumed elegance to match librettist Henri Cain’s coming-of-age adaptation of this classic fairy tale.
The colourful fantasy world with beautiful picturesque sets created by the famous stage director Barbrara Mundel and set designer Olga Motta features the British-Swiss soprano, Kim-Lillian Strebel, in the outstanding performed title role. Freiburg Philharmonic Orchestra performs under baton of internationally acknowledged French conductor Fabrice Bollon, well known for recordings of rarely performed operas.
