La Cenerentola-Gioacchino Rossini

Atto I

Descrizione: ACT I At Don Magnifica's house, his daughters Clorinda and Tisbe are mercilessly bored. They threw all responsibilities on the half-sister Angelina called Cinderella, who bustles working for three. Despite this, he sings to himself, although his life is dismal. Suddenly someone knocks! But since there is only a stranger on the threshold, none of the older sisters pays attention to him. It is Cinderella who brews his coffee, unaware that sage Alidoro, Prince Ramir's mentor, is hiding under his disguise. Suddenly, courtiers rush in, announcing that the prince is giving a ball for all the virgins in the area. Then the sisters start preparing, ordering Cinderella to take care of their toilet. The father, who had a dream that his daughters would be getting married, comes down. Just watch and Clorinda and Tisbe will find the happiness of their lives at the ball! There is a knock on the door again - this time it is the butler who sees Cinderella's cup fall out of her hands. What he doesn't know is that this handsome boy is actually a prince himself, in disguise only. A moment later, a royally dressed gentleman appears at the house. Thinking that this is the son of the master's shine, the older sisters outdo each other in promotions. And this is Ramir's butler, Dandini, who passionately plays the role of a master and gives the sisters an invitation to the ball. Cinderella asks her father for permission - she would also like to see the royal chambers. But the father is adamant - he forbids, although Alidoro clearly indicates in the register that all daughters are unmarried and have the right to enter the ball. If that doesn't work, Alidoro helps the girl by secretly borrowing her own carriage and wonderful, gorgeous dresses. While she is getting ready in her little room, the older sisters are already having a great time with Dandini. The latter finally announces that he will marry one of them on the condition that the other marries a butler. Clorinda and Tisbe stand indignant when the girl of the otherworldly beauty appears, reminiscent of her face ... Cinderella.

Atto II

Descrizione: ACT II Father and daughters cannot understand what kind of figure crosses their ranks. Dandini once again checks the purity of Cinderella's feelings, himself - as a prince - courting her. However, she professes allegiance to the servant whom she wanted to break the tableware upon. When Don Ramiro hears this confession, he grabs the girl in her arms, but she slips away, leaving only a bracelet for him. She has a second one at home, the same one she will wear. Cinderella suddenly disappears, and the prince promises to find the girl. Meanwhile, Don Magnifico wants to end the marriage lottery and forces Dandini to propose to one of his daughters. The latter, however, acknowledges that, as a princely butler, he cannot do it. The sad and disappointed three return home to plunge into boredom and dreams of a better life even more. The whole world seemed to echo them - the wind had just picked up and a storm had just started. Suddenly, in the pouring rain and to the accompaniment of thunder, Prince Ramiro, whose carriage has been crashed right next to Don Magnifica's house, pounds at the door. Packed, he asks for hospitality, but when he enters the house, he notices a bracelet shining on Cinderella's hand. The happy finale is near - Angelina becomes the prince's wife, and Don Magnifico and his daughters are on fire with jealousy and a thirst for revenge. Cinderella is far from bad deeds - she adheres to the principle "overcome evil with good" and generously forgives her adopted family, thus driving them to absolute despair.
