The music tale of a cunning barber Figaro was created by Gioacchino Rossini, the undisputed master of the Italian opera buffa.
It has entertained audiences all around the world for almost two hundred years now and Figaro has become one of the most popular opera protagonists, also thanks to Mozart's opera The Marriage of Figaro.

There are some 700 known versions of the Cinderella fairy tale.

Those inspirations were a base for the new version of the moving story of a girl bullied by her malicious stepmother and her awful daughters...
