December 1, 2018 - January 20, 2019

Massenet's elegant operatic retelling of beloved fairytale Cinderella is imbued with the composer's trademark sense of wit. Sumptuously sentimental and heart-warming, the adaptation is an unapologetically, yet extremely satisfying sugar-coated confection that blends romance and humour for a light-hearted romp, banishing the dark corners of the original Grimm brother's story.

Often likened to the next Maria Callas, it's hard to believe Russian Austrian operatic soprano Anna Netrebko had a life before opera, let alone a job that included scrubbing the floors at St. Petersburg's renowned Marrinksy Theatre. After winning the first prize in the prestigious Mikhail Glinka competition in 1993, the extraordinary diva began her descent into the upper echelons of opera, becoming one of the world's most in demand performers thanks to her dark yet lustrous voice, alluring stage presence and emotive characterisations.
