The Metropolitan Opera

Description of Rossini's La Cenerentola (Cinderella) from the Metropolitan Opera's website:

The story is simple: A young woman is denigrated by her own family but ultimately exalted by a prince who sees her true value. Rossini’s operatic version of the Cinderella tale (“Cenerentola” in Italian) is charming, beautiful, touching in parts, transcending its roots as a children’s fairytale and making the title heroine’s transformation one of character rather than stereotype.
