Outdoor Opera – Rossini’s La Cenerentola
19th June, 2016 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm£20
A unique outdoor opera performance, where guests are invited to picnic within stunning grounds, enjoying views across Bristol before settling down to enjoy an evening of opera; inspiring locals to enjoy Bristol’s wonderful outdoor spaces and encourage people to try traditionally indoor events – outdoors.
Set in modern day England, this sparkling comedy follows the story of Angelina, a harassed PA stuck in her step-father’s business, a Prince in the most royal of reality shows, and a litany of other colourful characters as we find out if true love can still triumph in the 21st Century.
We are taken on a whirlwind journey in this retelling of Cinderella, a story known by almost all, which is brought to life by the dazzling cast of Tessitoura and accompanied by one of Rossini’s most exquisite and complex scores.
The many wonderful melodies will be sung in English by both experienced performers and young singers who are accompanied by a spectacular ensemble of chamber musicians.
