With inherently comical characters and gleeful music, Rossini’s 1817 opera is a romantic comedy. Underlying the frivolity, lies the moral of the Cinderella story. The heroine is lifted out of hardship, not by the touch of a fairy-godmother’s wand but by her own kindness: she earns her ticket to the ball.
