2017-18 TOUR: CINDERELLA

Thank you for another successful tour! The announcement of next year’s tour is coming soon.

Some of the details may be different (this version has a wicked stepfather, a philosopher in lieu of fairy godmother, and a bracelet instead of glass slipper), but in Gioachino Rossini’s Cinderella, goodness and nobility of heart still triumph over greed and envy.  PSO makes full use of the vocally-acrobatic arias, buoyant ensembles, and comic touches in this fairy-tale opera that will delight both the young and the young-at-heart. Read the plot of this opera here.

Aspects of this touring production were made possible by support from the Opera Guild for Atlanta.
