Presenting the excitement of The Met: Live in HD on the Big Screen: The LIVE transmission of Rossini’s La Cenerentola will be shown for one day only on Saturday, May 9th at 9:30 AM. Hot on the heels of her triumphant Met debut as Rosina in last season’s Il Barbiere di Siviglia, Elīna Garanča portrays another Rossini charmer in this bel canto Cinderella story. Lawrence Brownlee is her Prince Charming, Don Ramiro. Veteran baritone Alessangro Corbelli demonstrates his impeccable comic timing to match the gravitas of Met favorite John Relyea. Maurizio Benini conducts.
