To finish off the season at Covent Garden, The Royal Opera House presents the story of Cinderella in Massenet’s Cendrillon. Production and fabulous costumes by Laurent Pelly. Conducted by French chief conductor of the Vienna Radio Symphony with the great name of Bertrand de Billy.
Quite charming, incredible singing and costumes made from the finest fabrics. A highlight was of course the opportunity to see my sister, Margaret playing in the stage band – placed in a box with a spotlight.
The next two performances are on 13 (when the production will be broadcast nationwide on BP Big Summer Screens) and 16 July.
