Program Notes

Masssenet had just settled into a genteel country estate when he undertook the writing of Cendrillon. The composer, in collaboration with his librettist Henri Cain, created a lavish four-act opera that was completed in 1896 and premiered in the spring of 1899 at the Opéra-Comique. Cendrillon was an immediate success, and received 50 performances before the end of the year. Ever sensitive to the desire of his audience, Massenet included ballet sequences to be performed during scene changes in order to keep the opera-goers entertained.

Cendrillon (Cinderella) is an opera—described as a "fairy tale"—in four acts by Jules Massenet to a French libretto by Henri Caïn based on Perrault's 1698 version of the Cinderella fairy tale. It gave its premiere performance on 24 May 1899 in Paris.
