The 2020-21 Metropolitan Opera Radio Broadcast season continues with Cendrillon, Massenet’s elegant and witty take on the Cinderella tale.
This encore broadcast from 2018 stars mezzo-soprano Joyce DiDonato in the title role opposite mezzo-soprano Alice Coote as Prince Charming. Soprano Kathleen Kim sang Cendrillon’s Fairy Godmother, mezzo-soprano Stephanie Blythe was her overbearing stepmother Madame de la Haltière, and bass-baritone Laurent Naouri sang Cendrillon’s beleaguered father Pandolfe.
Bertrand de Billy led the Met Orchestra and Chorus. Cendrillon will be heard over the Toll Brothers-Metropolitan Opera International Radio Network at 1:00 p.m. ET on Saturday, February 13. Listen to it on Classical IPR.
