An operatic re-telling of the story of Cinderella. Magnifico has three daughters, the ugly Clorinda and Tisbe, and the beautiful Cenerentola, who is forced to do the housework. When Prince Ramiro throws a ball it is the ugly sisters who assume they will catch the Prince's eye, little knowing that his tutor Alidoro has already selected Cenerentola as a fitting bride. To add to the confusion, the Prince swaps places with his valet Dandini. Performed live from the Wortham Center, Houston. Stars Cecilia Bartoli.
