Music: Classic fairy tale sung by Skagit Opera

Skagit Opera presents Gioachino Rossini’s “Cinderella/La Cenerentola” at 7:30 p.m. Friday, Feb. 27, and March 6, and at 3 p.m. Sunday, March 1, and March 8 at Skagit Valley College’s McIntyre Hall, 2501 E. College Way, Mount Vernon.

While there is no coach and no glass slipper, and a wise old philosopher instead of a fairy godmother, magical enchantment abounds in the score, which soars between high comedy and heartfelt emotion.

Tickets are $25 to $59, with general discounts for military, students and groups; and a special discount for people 35 and younger for Friday evening performances. Details: skagitopera.org, mcintyrehall.org.
