It has an evil stepmother with a bone to pick. It has a magical pumpkin with a curfew to make. It has a fairy tale ending with a prince to love.

Relive the magic of past childhood and forever dream with the perfect Valentine’s Day celebration, Jules Massenet’s perfect French jewel of an opera, Cinderella.
