In place of the planned broadcast from the Metropolitan Opera, this Saturday we have another chance to enjoy Rossini’s effervescent take on the Cinderella story, a production from Irish National Opera with mezzo-soprano Tara Erraught (pictured) in the title role and tenor Andrew Owens as her Prince Charming. Fergus Sheil conducts the lively action, which also features bass Graeme Danby as the bumbling Don Magnifico, bass-baritone David Ostrek as the benevolent Alidoro, and baritone Riccardo Novaro as the wily servant Dandini.

Recorded in the Bord Gais Energy Theatre on 14th November 2019, first broadcast December
