Based on the classic tale of ‘Cinderella’, La Cenerentola is one of Rossini’s masterpieces.  Sir Peter Hall directs this new production and Glyndebourne’s acclaimed Music Director, Vladimir Jurowski, will conduct the London Philharmonic Orchestra with the Glyndebourne Chorus. Ruxandra Donose sings the leading role of Angelina. Maxim Mironov as Don Ramiro, Luciano Di Pasquale as Don Magnifico, Raquela Sheeran as Clorinda, Lucia Cirillo as Tisbe and Simone Alberghini as Dandini, all make their British debuts, with Nathan Berg singing Alidoro.

Compton Verney is funded by the Peter Moores Foundation, which has generously supported Glyndebourne’s new production of La Cenerentola and the outdoor screening on 4th June in the grounds of Compton Verney.

Glyndebourne, in co-production with Opus Arte, will be recording La Cenerentola from this summer’s festival for release on DVD and world-wide broadcast, and are making this live relay possible.
