Peter Hall's production of Rossini's darkly comic take on Cinderella divided opinion at Glyndebourne this summer. Perhaps its detractors were roused by the fact that Hall had laid out some of his intentions in a programme note - something directors do at their peril. His interpretation may not push many theatrical envelopes, however, as revived by Lynne Hockney for Glyndebourne on Tour, what emerges is something timeless, and old-fashioned in the best sense. Crucially, the music sparkles thanks to Edward Gardner's detailed and vivid conducting.
