Conductor Vladimir Jurowski elicits here an effervescent, enthralling and elegant performance of one of Rossini's great operas La Cenerentola. Rossini operas and La Cenerentola in particular are Glyndebourne favourites having been introduced by Italian conductor Vittorio Gui in the early 1950s. Gui introduced no less than four Rossini operas during his tenure as Glyndebourne's Music Director. La Cenerentola is in 2 acts and based on the fairy tale Cendrillon (Cinderella) by Charles Perrault. Composed over a period of 3 weeks when Rossini was in his mid-20s it follows the early success the composer had with his opera Barber of Seville.

In this recording Glyndebourne's Music Director Vladimir Jurowski leads an extremely well integrated cast. Romanian soprano Ruxandra Donose is spectacular with her ?awless timbre, expressive vocalism and thoughtful musicianship all on display here. Leading Rossini tenor Maxim Mironov is equal to the task in his portrayal of Don Ramiro, his voice sweet-toned and ?exible.

Such is Glyndebourne's pedigree with La Cenerentola that the benchmark historical recording of this opera is also a Glyndebourne Opera recording from 1952 on EMI Classics. Conducted by Vittorio Giu it has Marina de Gabarain as Cenerentola and Juan Oncina as Don Ramiro, with Sesto Bruscantini as Magni?co.
