Cinderella smallMarch 29, April 4, April 5, 7:30 p.m. & March 30, 2 p.m.

Presented by the Charles & Reta Ralph Opera Center

Directed by Tiffany Blake & Conducted by Wes Kenney

The Ralph Opera Center presents the enchanting fairy tale of Cinderella in performances of Jules Massenet’s French opera, Cendrillon. Based on Perrault’s 1698 version of the “Cinderella” fairy tale, Massenet’s version will enthrall audiences, and is a wonderful introduction to the art form for younger audiences.

“The music is very beautiful with a variety of vocal colors,” said director Tiffany Blake. “It’s very much the fairy tale we all know and love, and our production will really highlight those magical moments.”

The production, while not set in the traditional period, draws from several periods with whimsical costumes, gothic elements, magical transformations – all the elements of a wonderful fairy tale. Read more.
