The whimsical staging, directed by Laurent Pelly, comes to life April 12 through May 11. Alice Coote sings Le Prince Charmant, Stephanie Blythe is Madame de la Haltière, Laurent Naouri is Pandolfe, and Kathleen Kim sings La Fée. Bertrand de Billy conducts the Met Opera Orchestra for all performances. On April 28 international audiences can enjoy Cendrillon via a Met Opera Live in HD cinema broadcast.
