karen almond

The Metropolitan Opera’s 2023-24 season of Saturday matinee broadcasts continues with "Cinderella," Massenet’s gorgeous setting of the classic fairy tale.

This performance from 2022 features a stellar cast in the Met’s one-act version of the opera, sung in English.

Isabel Leonard is the beloved heroine, starring opposite Emily D’Angelo as Prince Charming.

They’re joined by Jessica Pratt as the Fairy Godmother, Laurent Naouri as Cinderella’s father, and Stephanie Blythe as everyone’s favorite villain – the imperious stepmother.

Maestro Emmanuel Villaume leads the Met orchestra and chorus in Massenet’s enchanting score.

"Cinderella" will be heard over the Robert K. Johnson Foundation-Metropolitan Opera International Radio Network at 1p.m. ET on Saturday, June 1.
