On April 29, 2022, Mason Opera brought Giacomo Rossini’s “La Cenerentola” to life before a live audience in Harris Theatre on Mason’s Fairfax campus. Composed in 1817, Rossini’s “La Cenerentola, ossia La bontà in trionfo” (translated to “Cinderella” or “Goodness Triumphant”), is a charming, operatic dramma giocoso in two acts, which premiered at the Teatro Valle in Rome on January 25, 1817, and features the spirited ensembles and florid, bel canto style of singing, made famous by Rossini as the leading composer of his day. In addition to the beautiful music and the exquisite sets, costumes, and lighting, Mason’s exciting spring opera production features the talents of vocal and instrumental students from Mason Opera and Mason Symphony Orchestra. Mason Opera invites audiences to join them for a program of exciting artistry, as they retell the beautiful Cinderella story, “La Cenerentola!”
