La Cenerentola

by Gioachino Rossini
May 13 and 14, 2022
Park Theatre, Jaffrey, NH

 

Cenerentola (Kelsey Robertson), a seamstress and aspiring fashion designer, labors under her oppressive stepfather, Don Magnifico (Andy Papas) and wannabe-model stepsisters, Clorinda (Francesca Federico) and Tisbe (Alyce Daubenspeck). It is Fashion Week in Milan, and Cenerentola is intent on presenting her fashion creations.  The plot unfolds along the lines of the well-known fairy tale, but the Prince (Pedro Barbosa) is the head of the preeminent Milanese fashion house, House of Ramiro, a rival to Magnifico.  Though the stage is set for Ramiro to rescue Cenerentola from the clutches of her stepfamily, she succeeds in bridging the rival factions into an all-powerful fashion empire.  The cast also features Armando Contreras as Dandini and Michael Scarcelle as Alidoro.
