The Peabody Opera Theatre and the Peabody Symphony Orchestra will present Jules Massenet's Cendrillon, based on Perrault's 1698 version of the Cinderella fairy tale, on Friday, November 14 and Saturday, November 15, at 7:30 pm; and Sunday, November 16, at 3:00 pm. Jennifer Blades is the stage director and Hajime Teri Murai is the music director. Blades says in her program notes, "If you are only familiar with Disney's Cinderella, then the story of Cendrillon will take you on a different path to the fairy tale ending ...a musical and poetic story that is both human and magical, a true romance of two souls."
