The latest New Zealand Opera production is about to open. It's Rossini's La Cenerentola, rather better known as Cinderella. Interestingly three of the leads - Cinderella and the two Wicked Sisters - are all played by expat New Zealand singers. Singers Amelia Barry and Rachelle Pike were both New Zealand Opera Emerging Artists who studied together in New York.
