Cenerentola now on stage

Posted 16 Oct 2014

The warmest of welcomes to Rossini's Cenerentola, whose return has been eagerly awaited. This opera, associated by many of us with the early years of Scottish Opera, has been absent for too long from Scotland's main stages.

For this outing, Scottish Opera is again in a co-production with Opéra National du Rhin of Strasbourg, following the success of the previous collaboration on Mozart's Cosi fan tutte in 2009.

Rising stars Victoria Yarovaya and Nico Darmanin make their debuts leading the cast as Cinderella and the prince, Don Ramiro. With Richard Burkhard (Papageno in 2013), Rebecca Bottone (Mabel in 2013) and Graeme Danby, who returns to the company having built his career with ENO, we have some familiar and welcome faces.

By contrast, conductor William Lacey, and director Sandrine Anglade and her production team, are all new to the company so we look forward to a fresh and fascinating staging.
