The story of Cinderella updated to the 1950s in a collaborative production
Tri-Cities Opera is presenting Gioachino Rossini's setting of the tale of Cinderella in a joint production with Syracuse Opera. It's a different version of the tale, with a stepfather instead of a stepmother, a wise tutor instead of a fairy godmother, and matching bracelets instead of a glass slipper -- but lots of laughs. We hear from executive director John Rozzoni, Camille Sherman who plays Cinderella, and Aaron Crouch who plays the Prince.
