Playing with Rossini’s Opera
Coproduced by the INSTITUT VALENCIÀ DE LA MÚSICA + BAMBALINA for all audiences.
We haven’t reproduced Rossini’s Cinderella, we’ve used it as a fabulous toy; using it to rediscover how to have fun with art, defining a realm in which everything takes on new meaning and using the original without eclipsing or distorting it. We want to provide a contemporary, fun and lucid take on this opera: three eccentric characters who manipulate the singers and musicians, animation, shadows and a world of living letters that have broken free from their habitual task of forming words to devote themselves to illustrating places and characters. Let’s play with Rossini!
