RNCM Opera: Cinderella (Cendrillon) by Jules Massenet at Royal Northern College of Music (RNCM), Manchester, 6–16 December 2017, from £21.00 - Book now

Jules Massenet’s twist on Charles Perrault’s fairytale Cinderella is the subject of this major festive production by RNCM Opera.

In this version, the Prince travels the length and breadth of the country to find the owner of a glass slipper left behind after a chance encounter with Cinderella in her Fairy Godmother’s magic forest. Having previously been convinced that she dreamt up their first meeting during a fever, they meet again and she finally returns his love.

Premiered in Paris in 1899, Cendrillon is a dramatic take on the traditional fairytale, displaying humour, wit and even sarcasm. It will be sung in French with surtitles.

Under 18s can save 50% off ticket prices.
