Angelina: La Cenerentola / Opera South East


“The star of the show was undoubtedly Hannah Mason, singing the coloratura role of Cinderella. It’s always a bonus when a singer in opera can act and, within a few minutes of her appearance, you knew this was one scullery maid who wild horses would not keep away from her prince. Her defiance to her stepfather belied her girlish features and humble costume. There was steel in her agile voice as she easily mastered the trills and thrills of this demanding part. This was Hannah Mason’s first coloratura role and she pulled it off with aplomb”
