Charles Perrault’s treasured fairy tale has enchanted children for generations. With its magical transformation of poor servant girl Cendrillon (Cinderella) to the belle of the ball with dazzling glass slippers, this beloved story is full of love, hope, and fantasy.

Victorian Opera presents a humorous and heart-warming production of Jules Massenet’s opera in a family-friendly hour-long show. A familiar story retold with beautifully effervescent melodies, Cendrillon is the perfect chance to discover a live opera with the children in your life.

Boasting dreamy costumes, this classic fairy tale is playfully brought to the stage and accompanied by a live orchestra.

Join Cendrillon, Le Prince Charmant (Prince Charming), and La Fée (The Fairy Godmother) for a magical visit to the Ball.
