CINDERELLA EN ESPAÑA
A BILINGUAL CHILDREN'S OPERA FOR GRADES K–6
Our most popular touring opera is back!
Seattle Opera’s 2019 touring production is inspired by various global retellings of the timeless rags-to-riches tale. A returning favorite, Cinderella en España sets the action in the culturally vibrant coastal city of Barcelona, providing a lively, modern-day bilingual backdrop to this deceptively simple story about the beauty of kindness and the ugliness of mistreating others.
Libretto by Kate Pogue, Music by Mary Carol Warwick. Stage Direction by Kelly Kitchens, Costumes by Melanie Burgess. Commissioned by Houston Grand Opera.
