This 1983 Glyndebourne production of La Cenerentola is superb. Has this famous Rossini opera ever been staged and sung any better than this anywhere at any time? The hairstyles and costumes are particularly well designed and the staging is both imaginative and realistic. The scene in the maze is especially well done. In this production buffoonery is not allowed to eclipse the sinister characteristics of the stepfather and ugly sisters essential to an accurate interpretation of this classic folk tale. Cinderella forgives her stepfather and the ugly sisters, but the impression remains that they have been forced into submission and are not truly repentant. This may be a folk tale, but the depiction of each character involved is true to life and Rossini seems to have been aware of this when he fitted the words to his music. True fairy stories are tales fantasising about real life experiences, which is brought out particularly well in this production.
Both orchestration and singing are a delight. Kathleen Kuhlmann's interpretation of Cinderella is superb and perfectly matched by Laurence Dale's realistic interpretation of Ramiro. Marta Taddei and Laura Zannini get the ugly sisters just right and Claudio Desderi fitted into the role of Don Magnifico like a glove. I particularly liked Alberto Rinaldi's interpretation of Dandini and Roderick Kennedy was a firtsrate Alidoro. The chorus and crowd scenes were well staged with every extra acting their parts perfectly. One can only wonder where all these great singers are now almost 30 years on from this inspiring Glyndebourne production. Both Chaucer and Shakespeare valued folk tales and maybe more people than is realised like them too. I know I do, especially when they're staged and sung as well as in this wonderful production, which makes me so happy that I own a copy of it.

A true CinderellaRezension aus dem Vereinigten Königreich vom 15. Oktober 2016
Despite its age (maybe because of it) this production captures the very essence of this beautiful story in a charming traditional 'theatrical' way. It made me think of Bergman's immortal 'Flute'. Kathleen Kuhlmann is the perfect Cinderella displaying the ideal combination of innocence and bewilderment coupled with her lovely singing. I currently have the Bartoli version but can never really seen her as a Cinderella. I shall always watch this version. Laurence Dale is excellent as the prince; he sings well and looks the part so you really believe in them as a pair. The whole cast is splendid as other reviewers have largely said. Yes, the picture quality isn't ideal but I can accept this. I give this honest unsophisticated production 5 stars.

FairRezension aus dem Vereinigten Königreich vom 16. August 2017
This is a fair performance. The problem is that, well as she sings, Kuhlmann does not sparkle in the part. She is fine at being sad but she seems unable to convey the joy that is in the character. Everyone else is fine. But it all seems a bit dull.
Ottima edizione.Rezension aus Italien vom 14. April 2014
Esecuzione datata (30 anni fa), ma veramente notevole. Un magistrale Alberto Rinaldi ( Dandini) da lezione di canto e un Claudio Desderi ( Don Magnifico) in uno dei suoi cavalli di battaglia. Da vedere e ascoltare.
