Yesterday I have been to the opera in Frankfurt: La Cenerentola of Giacchino Rossini. Not a very complicated piece but something funny and lyrical in part with easy going music.
The production was great. They had a replica of the stage as puppet theater also on the stage and played mostly on the stage but sometimes also in the puppet theater mimicking the big stage. As if to say we are all playing our roles.
The set was also very colourful which is unusual for productions of Frankfurt. The orchestra was excellent as always. Singers were good but not exceptional.
Very different from the piece I had seen last week!
