In April, Annelies was selected as the Boulder Families Reviewer for Boulder Opera’s production of La Cenerentola. A BIG thanks to Annelies for this thoughtful review!
Hi, my name is Annelies and I’m 11 years old. BRAVO! BRAVA!
What Did You Review? I went to go see Cinderella but in Italian. It was actually called La Cenerentola and it was all opera. There was no one speaking with real voices. In opera they sing really fast and really loud.
What Was It About? It was about Cinderella trying to go to the ball and she does get to go and at the end Cinderella gets married to the prince.
What Was Your Favorite Part? My favorite character was the evil sister Clorinda. She could sing the loudest and she was really funny. She came to the audience and walked around and sang really loud and almost sat on a dad.
What Surprised You About This Opera? All the singers had very different opera voices and I thought that they would have the same voice.
Would You Recommend It To A Friend? I would recommend it to a friend if they liked opera or music or funny plays. It was boring in some parts but still good.
Anything Else You Want To Say? There were a lot of kids even a lot of little kids and they could dance in the aisles. There were also good cookies, cupcakes and water for sale.

This was so great to read – thank you so much for making this review happen! And I haven’t thanked you for all of your support and help, which was invaluable! Tania ended up coming to the performance in the end, although she actually bought tickets and I just noticed this after the fact when I was reviewing our box office info.
Our next mini-opera will be in December – The Magic Flute – I’m really excited about this one!
Hope all is well with you and I hope that we get to meet in person at some point.
thanks again! Christy
Thanks, Christy! It sounds like the production was a success! All the best…
