It’s a beloved fairy tale that continues to charm: the mysterious and magical story of the downtrodden beauty and her prince. Cinderella has been told in countless ways throughout the ages, from Charles Perrault’s classic 1698 storybook version to pantomimes, stage plays and modern feature films.
Cinderella is now coming to WAAPA in a sparkling new production of Jules Massenet’s glorious opera, Cendrillon. Sung in English, audiences will be entertained by the loving, yet haplessly passive father; the jovially villainous stepmother; the lonely, melancholy prince; the magical fairy godmother; and a gently courageous Cendrillon, whose unjust oppression is magically transformed into triumphant reward.
Directed by Thomas de Mallet Burgess, Cinderella will be performed in the Geoff Gibbs Theatre by WAAPA’s Classical Voice students and the Faith Court Orchestra under the musical direction of Alexander Briger AO. It opens on Monday 15 October and runs for six consecutive nights.
