Channel your love for the local arts community and head to Opera in the Village for two weekends of performances. If you’re anything like us, one of our favourite productions coming to life this summer is Cinderella, an adaptation by Rob Herriot of two operas; Gioacchino Rossini’s La Cenerentola and Jules Massenet’s Cendrillon. This one-act opera is a perfect introduction to opera, and fun for the entire family. Plus, you’ll be sure to feel a little nostalgic after.
