A peerless pair of Rossini virtuosos joins forces in La Cenerentola—a vocal tour de force for mezzo-soprano Joyce DiDonato, singing her first Met performances of the Cinderella title role, and the high-flying tenor Juan Diego Flórez, as her Prince Charming. Alessandro Corbelli and Luca Pisaroni complete the cast, with Met Principal Conductor Fabio Luisi leading the effervescent score.
What seems to be going on here is that New York City’s Metropolitan Opera is pairing two of the most superb singing-actors of our time to attract audiences to see a fun but formulaic work by Rossini.
