This week on Kids Commute from Interlochen Public Radio - let's go to the opera! Today, we continue with Part Two of Rossini's opera La Cenerentola.
Yesterday, we met Angelina (otherwise known as La Cenerentola/Cinderella), singing to herself while her sisters, Clorinda and Tisbe, give her a hard time. Then.. a knock at the door! Who is it?
EPISODE 11 (Tuesday, September 19, 2017 - encore rebroadcast March 20, 1018):
Un tantin di carita (a cup of charity)
Here's today's Kids Commute:
Here's a clip from an absolutely wonderful film of La Cenerentola. Frederica von Stade is Cenerentola, and Paul Plishka is Alidoro. This clip starts a few minutes in, but do yourself a favor... watch the whole opera from the beginning! This version even has English subtitles!
