"The Welsh National Opera production is a tour-de-force, where hilarity and virtuosity go hand-in-hand. In the lead role of Angelina-Cinderella, is Tara Erraught, an Irish soprano .... She brought warmth and grace to a fiendishly difficult rôle, full of embellishments and florid passages of demi-semi-quavers. All of it was carried off with applomb and exquisite taste, and the expression on the face of the Prince (Matteo Macchioni) made it clear that he would fall in love with this nightingale even without any transformation from rags to a grand ball gown."
