La Cenerentola is inspired by the classic fairy tale, Cinderella, which follows the story of a young woman who is forced to act as a servant, but with some special help and a bracelet, she is eventually discovered by the Prince and becomes the new Princess.
Additional production information

The Atlanta Opera will cast 6 men and/or women to portray mice – which are non-singing, non-speaking roles. Ideal candidates should be between 5’2” and 5’11” in height and must be able to fit into an existing costume.

Actors should be agile, quick and physically expressive. There is a lot of time spent on the floor, especially kneeling and crawling. These roles are physically demanding; therefore, we cannot consider anyone with back or knee problems. The mice are onstage frequently and carry scenic elements and props.  Ability to follow music and take cues independently is necessary.
