Chris Botti with the Columbus Symphony

Apr 1, 2017 | 7:30 PM | Heritage Center – John and Alice Butler Hall

Rossini’s version of this classic-fairy tale is a vocal and comedic romp! A wise magician takes the place of the fairy godmother and Don Magnifico, the girl’s father, rants and raves instead of a wicked stepmother, but the nasty stepsisters, Prince Charming and a glass slipper prove, beyond all question, that this is the fairy tale we all know and love. When combined with hilarious characters and situations set to some of Rossini’s finest music, it becomes comic opera at its most exhilarating and often frenzied best!
