La Cenerentola (Cindrella) by G. Rossini
There are a thousand versions of the Cinderella (Goodness Triumphant) tale dating back to the ancient Greeks and Chinese through to the modern films of today; but, there is only one Cinderella by Gioachino Rossini (libretto by Giacomo Ferretti). Cinderella (La Cenerentola) "is far from a simple comic opera, Rossini adapts for his purposes not only the popular semiseria genre but even the exalted vocal style of opera seria"
