Closing out the season is a production of “La Centerentola.”

“For audiences more familiar with the French or German fairy tale, the Italian opera version of the story will bring some delightful surprises,” said Opera General & Artistic Director Turner Wilson in an official announcement. “This Cinderella meets and falls in love with her prince — in disguise as a servant — long before the ball. Then when the ball ends, she challenges him to prove himself worthy in a way that girls today will find charmingly resonant. La Cenerentola is truly the perfect opera experience for the whole family, and we can’t wait to share it with our friends here in Fort Worth.”

Performance Date: April 25 & 27, 2025
