Rossini’s effervescent take on the Cinderella story returns, with rising star mezzo-soprano Tara Erraught in the title role and tenor sensation Javier Camarena as her Prince Charming.


"Tara Erraught is gently angelic as the neglected Angelina (Cenerentola), her earlier arias glinting with longing and final forgiveness alight with gorgeous vocal flair."


"Tara Erraught gave us a gently humane Angelina, whose attempt to reconcile herself with Don Magnifico and her sisters is genuinely touching; so too is her relationship with the actor-mice, where her kindness and empathy for her fellow downtrodden creatures glows warmly. Her voice is richer and smokier than your usual mezzo, with the charcoal shading of the contralto lower down."


"And in Tara Erraught, WNO has a natural Angelina. The Irish mezzo’s voice is warm as smouldering embers, tender throughout, with unfaltering coloratura. She’s down to earth but a dreamer, wise about the world but innocently hopeful. Even in this cartoonish universe, this Cenerentola’s thoughts and feelings seemed real."



Take one of the world’s most recognised fairy tales, add some comedy and a touch of Rossini magic and you get one great night at the opera. WNO Music Director, Tomáš Hanus and our very own Cinderella, Tara Erraught tell us why La Cenerentola is simply too good to miss.

"Irish mezzo-soprano Tara Erraught is making a bit if history with her upcoming run as Susanna in Mozart's Le nozze di Figaro. Irish National Opera, newly formed with the merging of two of Ireland's most important producers, Wide Open Opera and Opera Theatre Company, presents Mozart's operatic cornerstone as their first major new production. Erraught will make a much-anticipated return home for the production, marking a special combination of her work as an internationally acclaimed mezzo-soprano, and an artistic partner of INO."
