About this event

The story of Cinderella to Jules Massenet’s sensuous and lavish score in a new production, directed by Fiona Shaw (The Rape Of Lucretia). With its enchanting love story and broad, burlesque comedy, Cendrillon is one of the great operatic fairy tales. Massenet’s beautiful, lyrical music brings the familiar characters from Perrault’s story to life – a loving, yet hapless father, a jovially villainous stepmother, the lonely prince and a fairy godmother. The gently courageous Cendrillon, never quite sure whether she is dreaming or awake, is perhaps the most bewitching of all Cinderellas. The opera is full of wonderful music, from the impassioned love duet for Cendrillon and her Prince to the coloratura effervescence of the Fairy Godmother and the brilliantly scored ‘Marche Des Princesses’. Glyndebourne favourite Danielle de Niese sings the lead role in this performance, conducted by John Wilson.

About us

Dartington is an old place with a new story.

The Dartington Experiment began in 1925 and was based on the idea that humans are many-sided – and how we need environments that encourage our whole being to flourish, in connection with nature and each other.

This idea is as true today is it ever was.
