Filled with emotions, Glyndebourne comes to the Birks Cinema with three productions from its 2019
Festival – painted in bold musical colours, magic is sprinkled through a season that also
gathers together some classic operatic fairy tales.
Cinderella (Cendrillon) (Live) on Sunday 30 June
A brand new production which takes the classic Cinderella story and put through the lens of
composer Massenet’s sensuous and lavish score. Glyndebourne favourite and international
star Danielle de Niese plays the titular role in this glittering and colourful opera.

psychological transformation.’ – The Times
