BIF's sell out production of Pauline Viardot's Cinderella is going on tour this coming spring

Pauline Viardot (1821-1910)

A Buxton International Festival production

****This performance of Cendrillon was an absolute joy….the best 75 minutes I’ve spent in ages’ –  The Guardian

***** ‘Entirely delightful’ – The Stage

’When I want to do something, I do it in spite of water, fire, society, the whole world!’ said Pauline Viardot: the most famous Romantic heroine you’ve never heard of. A household name across Europe during the late 19th century she led an extraordinary life, but her star has unjustifiably faded.

Join the Viardot revival with this elegant retelling of the classic fairy tale Cinderella.   The perfect entertainment for families, and a wonderful introduction to opera with sumptuous melodies, soaring vocal lines and a lot of laughter and smiles.

This production played to sell-out audiences at Buxton International Festival in 2021 and received national critical acclaim.  You can now catch it again, as it goes on tour.
