Saturday, October 24, 2 pm, Small Meeting Room, Main Library

Join us for a lecture on Rossini's La Cenerentola presented by Jean Joslyn of the Lyric Opera Lecture Corps.

The beloved tale of Cinderella (La Cenerentola) meets operatic delight in this bubbling Rossini hit! You know the story: Cinderella is dressed in rags and destined to toil away for her nasty stepsisters and horrible stepfather — who is scheming to convince the Prince to marry one of his "real" daughters. But not so fast, ladies — mean girls aren't the Prince's style, and there's a happily-ever-after ending for the maid with the heart of gold.
