Based on Charles Perrault’s Cinderella fairytale, Gioachino Rossini’s bubbly opera La Cenerentola liberally adapts the familiar story to reflect a changing culture, greed and the beauty of love. CCM’s Studio Opera Series takes this tale from its original setting at the end of the age of Enlightenment to today in a modern retelling of a classic. The vocal acrobatics of Rossini paired with the comedic love story of Cinderella runs May 25 through 27 in UC’s Cohen Family Studio Theater. Blake Richardson conducts with stage direction by Jennifer A. Williams.
CCM’s Opera Series continues March 4 – 6 with the Studio Series production of Jacques Offenbach’s The Island of Tulipatan. You can learn more about the production here.
Beginning this evening and running through Sunday, Feb. 13, CCM’s Mainstage Series of Operas, Dramas and Musicals presents Mozart’s The Marriage of Figaro. Mark Lyons provides us with a preview slideshow.
Extremely limited tickets are still available for our matinee performances. Learn more about the production at ccm.uc.edu.
CCM students and staff are putting their own mark on Mozart’s timeless opera buffa The Marriage of Figaro (Le Nozze di Figaro) whether it is from the original 18th-century-inspired costume designs, the simple and elegant scenic designs or the polished presentation of Mozart’s comedic ensemble scenes. The Marriage of Figaro runs from February 10-13 in CCM’s Patricia Corbett Theater on the University of Cincinnati campus.
