November 20 – December 13: A Classic Story Comes to Life on the LA Opera Stage


Cinderella to Have a Ball on LA Opera Stage

From November 20 through December 13, the LA Opera presents Gioachino Rossini's beloved romantic comedy in which true love conquers all — despite the obstacles presented by a pompous stepfather and two self-absorbed stepsisters.

In Cinderella (La Cenerentola), the spunky heroine (no damsel in distress here) is presented with an opportunity to nab the most eligible bachelor in the land and outwit her social-climbing family in the process. Fast-rising operatic stars Serena Malfi and Levy Sekgapane are featured as the fairytale lovers, alongside world-renowned Ildebrando D'Arcangelo as Cinderella's mysterious benefactor. Rossini master Alessandro Corbelli returns to the Dorothy Chandler Pavilion stage as the stepfather who tries to foil the happy ending.

Opera lovers are delighted that the LA Opera has safely returned in order the pandemic to bring this story to a live audience. The Opera has adopted a temporary vaccination-only policy in addition to requiring masks for attendance. However, guests will have the option to watch Cinderella from home via two live-streamed performances on November 28 at 2 p.m. PT or December 1 at 7:30 p.m. PT.  

GRoW is honored to support this beloved rags-to-riches tale and to continue its relationship with the LA Opera.
