Rossini's 'La Cenerentola' in Rome,
reviewed by GIUSEPPE PENNISI

 

After fifteen years of absence, Teatro dell'Opera di Roma presented a new production of Rossini's dramma giocoso La Cenerentola.

The project includes as many as three different productions of Il Barbiere — the first in the main house starting 11 February 2016, the second, in the Spring, in a travelling van in squares of both the city center and the suburbs, and the third in July and August at the Baths of Caracalla in the open air. In a co-production arrangement, the opera van will also reach squares in Palermo...
