    The Massenet.

    I like the Rossini, too, a lot. It's got this:

    Massenet: Cendrillon wins for me.
    Theatre, a forum for public debate, an arena for cathartic spectacle and somewhere for vain bitchy people to show off in front of big crowds!


    I forgive criticisms, I like to embrace enemies.

    No question - Cenerentola;



    But I enjoyed the Massenet too when I saw it

    I can live without both. We have a fascinating Cinderella ballet by Prokofiev - more spookily magical than Disney - but not an opera that captivates me.

    That is something I ought to look into.
