YOU NEVER FORGET YOUR FIRST OPERA!
From 2015, for an audience between 0 and 36 months old.
The musical conception takes inspiration from the original work, whose recurring arias stand out to invite listening; the experience promotes experimentation through all the senses with colors, shapes, materials and languages designed for an infant-friendly stage setup.
The performance, lasting about 45 minutes, is introduced by training for social educational workers of early childhood and, upon request, by a classroom meeting.
Taken from La Cenerentola by Gioachino Rossini
Director Sara Zanobbio
Musical drama Anna Pedrazzini

Opera baby – VII edition (6-36 months)
Our Cinderella tells of a little girl struggling with sibling rivalry, that feeling of being hopelessly outmatched and the fear of not being able to win her parents’ love and esteem.
But Cinderella is a heroine, strong and dreamy. In solitude, she learns to discover great adventures in small things, she knows how to look and listen and loves rhythm. She beats and shakes and finds incredible music everywhere, she sings her dreams.
It is music that will spur her on to change, to transformation. No, no prince, but the beauty of a dream, the strength of a desire.
On a Summer day, Cinderella overcomes her sadness and gets the better of her sisters, even trying to trick her father in order to attain the esteem she deserves.
Cinderella is now alone, victorious, with her music just for her. But suddenly, wish fulfilled, in a flash the rivalry also vanishes and Cinderella rediscovers the love for her father and sisters, four single notes united forever in a wonderful quatrain.
