The NNTT’s 2021/2022 Season will open with a new production of the bel canto opera masterpiece La Cenerentola. This opera buffa is one of the most admired piece by the Italian greatest composer Gioachino ROSSINI, and is an opera version of the familiar Cinderella story. Bel Canto opera has been becoming a popular genre at NNTT year by year, and La Cenerentola conveys the sheer pleasure of opera as it opens the new season.

The production is directed by AGUNI Jun, one of the best directors at interpreting Italian operas. The title role of Angelina is performed by WAKIZONO Aya, who is based in Italy and whose talent further blossoms with the passing of the years. Don Ramiro is performed by the talented Rossini singer René BARBERA, who appeared with WAKIZONO in Il Barbiere di Siviglia in 2020. In the role of Don Magnifico is the famous basso-buffo, Alessandro CORBELLI, while Alidoro is performed by Gabriele SAGONA, who has been acclaimed for many bel canto roles.
