(Rochester, NY) – Great Performances at the Met presents La Cenerentola, airing on Sunday, August 16 at 2 p.m. on WXXI-TV (DT21.1/cable1011/cable11). After her triumphant 2008 Met debut as Rosina in Il Barbiere di Siviglia, Elina Garanca portrays another Rossini heroine in this operatic Cinderella story. Lawrence Brownlee is her Prince Charming, with veteran baritone Alessandro Corbelli and Met favorite John Relyea rounding out the cast and Maurizio Benini conducting.
