UBC Opera: Cendrillon
February 4, 2024 @ 2:00 pm
Long before Disney’s Cinderella, there was Massenet’s Cendrillon. Based on Charles Perrault’s 1698 version of the classic fairy tale, Cendrillon finds our titular hero, whose real name is Lucette, aching to go to the ball. With the help of some magic, she is whisked away on a carriage and transformed into an unknown beauty. Will true love prevail before the clock strikes midnight?
