The Des Moines Metro Opera’s offering of Cinderella is the perfect show for children and families. Rossini’s version of the classic fairy tale is a vocal and comedic
romp! A wise magician takes the place of the fairy godmother and Don Magnifico, the girl’s father, rants and raves instead of a wicked stepmother, but the nasty stepsisters, Prince Charming and a glass slipper prove, beyond all question, that this is the fairy tale we all know and love. When combined with hilarious characters and situations and set to some of Rossini’s finest music, it becomes comic opera at its frenzied and most exhilarating best!
Note: HCPS is also sponsoring a school residency and
performance of The Billy Goats Gruff to Iowa Falls
Elementary students during the day.
