Tune in Saturday at 1 pm to hear leading mezzo-soprano Isabel Leonard and acclaimed tenor Lawrence Brownlee star in Rossini's Cinderella from the Lyric Opera of Chicago. The opera hews close to the traditional fairy tale, though this Cinderella has a rotten step father rather than step mother, receives help from a kind tutor rather than fairy stepmother and leaves behind a bracelet at the ball instead of a shoe.

Cast:

Angelina: Isabel Leonard
Prince Ramiro: Lawrence Brownlee
Don Magnifico: Alessandro Corbelli
Dandini: Vito Priante
Alidoro: Christian Van Horn
Clorinda: Diana Newman
Tisbe: Annie Rosen

Conductor: Sir Andrew Davis
