GREENVILLE, S.C. (March 1, 2016) – Bob Jones University will present Rossini’s “La Cenerentola” in Rodeheaver Auditorium at 8 p.m. on Tuesday, March 8, Thursday, March 10 and Saturday, March 12. Directed by Jeffrey Stegall, the production will feature five guest artists, including BJU grad Timothy Renner, who will perform the major roles of the opera.
“La Cenerentola,” tells the well-known story of Cinderella, but with a few key twists. Contrary to what those familiar with the classic fairytale might expect, audience members will find a wicked stepfather instead of a wicked stepmother, a beggar-philosopher instead of a fairy godmother, and silver bracelets to take the place of glass slippers.
“This opera is Cinderella’s wonderful journey to happily ever after,” says Stegall. “This larger-than-life production is full of quirky comic characters and visual surprises.”
The guest artists for this production include mezzo Karin Mushegain as Cinderella, baritone Timothy Renner as Alidoro, baritone Adelmo Guidarelli as Don Magnifico, tenor Jonathan Blalock as Don Ramiro and baritone Andrew Garland as Dandini.
Ticket prices are $30-$38 for adults and full time student tickets are $20. Tickets are available at bju.edu/tickets or by calling (864) 770-1372.
