Vladimir Jurowski and Sir Peter Hall are re-united for a fresh and vibrant but timelessly elegant production of Rossinis much-loved setting of the Cinderella story, with a fine cast led by Ruxandra Donose in the title role. Filmed in June 2005 with high definition cameras and recorded in multitrack 5.1 surround sound.
"This is a performance that meets the Glyndebourne gold standard...Hall has decided to keep it real and produced something understated, sensitive and thus deeply pleasurable." (The Daily Telegraph)
"Vladimir Jurowski, Glyndebournes young music director, draws sparkling playing from the London Philharmonic..." (The Sunday Telegraph)
"This is a truly marvellous performance on all counts - staging, conducting and singing...The sense of an ensemble on top form is underlined by Vladimir Jurowski's exacting, pellucid and vivid interpretation, so that the music, like the libretto, is presented afresh. The superb cast has no weaknesses and many strengths..." (Gramophone)
"...highly polished and brilliant playing..." (BBC Music Magazine)
