Notes & Reviews:
Arthaus presents Rossini's popular retelling of the Cinderella fairytale in an unusual staging by Paul Curran. The work - often oversimplified as a comic romp - gains unexpected gravitas from its setting in 1912, a period when class differences were very real. The fine cast is headed by Sonia Ganassi as Angelica, a leading Rossini heroine of our times.Notes & Reviews:
