Gioachino Rossini (1792-1868)
Vladimir Jurowski and Sir Peter Hall are reunited for a fresh and vibrant but timelessly elegant production of Rossini’s much-loved setting of the Cinderella story, with a fine cast led by Ruxandra Donose in the title role.
This is a 2 DVD set!
"This is a performance that meets the Glyndebourne gold standard… Hall has decided to keep it real and produced something understated, sensitive and thus deeply pleasurable." - Daily Telegraph
"Vladimir Jurowski, Glyndebourne’s young music director, draws sparkling playing from the London Philharmonic…" - Sunday Telegraph
"Opera-goers found themselves captivated by one of the best nights Glyndebourne has enjoyed in many a year." - Financial Times
"Jurowski … got simply superb playing from the London Philharmonic Orchestra, absolutely precise, perfectly balanced - I don’t believe I have ever heard brass play so softly, or to such effect." - Opera
"…the endlessly expressive music brims with jokes. Ensembles tie themselves in knots, grown men sing cheep-cheep, ding-dong doggerel and an air of lunacy prevails. Hall’s answer is to exercise restraint, even in the mad set pieces… this sober approach turned out to be sharp and amusing." - Evening Standard
"With its simple, elegant designs and a powerful storm sequence, the production is a joy to watch and hear." - Sunday Express
