Cendrillon, or Cinderella, promises to be an opulent interpretation of this favorite fairy tale, romantic, wistful and full of grace. Believe it or not, the Disney telling of the Cinderella story is not the only version there is. Massenet’s Cendrillon is based on a version of the popular fairy tale written in 1698 by French author, Charles Perrault. This version predates the Grimm Brothers adaptation by over 100 years. Massenet composed this opera in the last decade of the 19th century and Cendrillon saw its premiere performance in 1899. The opera will be sung in French with English subtitles.

The all-inclusive price for this afternoon of entertainment is $58.00 per person. This includes the gourmet buffet brunch, Maestro Carthy’s talk and one ticket to the opera. The UWC has reserved 50 tickets to the opera.

Register and pay online before March 4, 2023 – the earlier the better.
