Continuing a treasured holiday tradition, the Met presents a new installment in its series of abridged opera adaptations for family audiences. Laurent Pelly’s storybook staging of Massenet’s Cendrillon, a hit of the 2017–18 season, is presented with an all-new English translation in an abridged 90 minutes, with mezzo-soprano Isabel Leonard as its rags-to-riches princess. Maestro Emmanuel Villaume leads a delightful cast, which includes mezzo-soprano Emily D’Angelo as Cinderella’s Prince Charming, soprano Jessica Pratt as her Fairy Godmother, and mezzo-soprano Stephanie Blythe and bass-baritone Laurent Naouri as her feuding guardians.

Please note that children under the age of 12, for whom there is not yet an available vaccine, are not currently permitted to enter the Met. As soon as they become eligible to receive a vaccine, hopefully by later this fall, fully vaccinated children will of course be welcomed. Please also note that, in any case, the 2021–22 ticket policy includes flexible exchanges for all ticket buyers. If you are unable to attend a performance for any reason, you will be eligible for a complimentary exchange for a future performance. Learn more
