The New Recordings, Cliffs Classics, October 2006

This is a fresh and vibrant but timelessly elegant production - in surround-sound and filmed in high-definiton - of the much- loved Cinderella story. Stage settings are sumptuous, and the entire performance worthy of nothing but the highest praise. In most of his light-hearted operas, Rossini employed a successful formula consisting of rapid-fire 'parlando' arias, alternating with bel canto arias and duets of heartwarming beauty. Such was Rossini's success, that he became financially independent and was able to take early retirement, after which he composed very little.
