Being a princess can be exhausting! At least becoming one can… You get a mean stepfather (yep), meaner stepsisters (check), and a whole lot of chores to do! Of course, you also get a grand ball, instant and undying love, and a really great bracelet too (glass slippers are so yesterday and way too breakable). Break out your tiara and set a date with this ultimate Virginia Opera rags-to-riches tale, and get ready for a larger-than-life operatic fairytale that’ll have you floating on air and home by midnight.

Approximate Runtime: 2 hours, 48 minutes

Sung in Italian with English Supertitles
