MET Live in HD: Cendrillon

For the first time ever, Massenet’s sumptuous take on the Cinderella story comes to the Met. Joyce DiDonato stars in the title role, with mezzo-soprano Alice Coote in the trouser role of Prince Charming, Kathleen Kim as the Fairy Godmother, and Stephanie Blythe as the imperious Madame de la Haltière. Bertrand de Billy conducts Laurent Pelly’s imaginative storybook production. A free talk about this opera will be given in the studio on the lower level before the broadcast at 12:15 PM (45 minutes before the start time) by Scott Morrison. Run time 2hrs 47mins
