Deutscher reimagined the tale of Cinderella, setting it in an opera house run by the wicked stepmother.

Oh, that is a beautifully-simple idea! I can see how that would work perfectly.



In Deutscher's version Cinderella (left) impresses the prince with a beguiling song

Well done!

This is an earlier performance, chamber style, with English subtitles. She is following in illustrious footsteps - Mozart was a child prodigy, born in Salzburg, Austria.
Alma Elizabeth Deutscher (born February 2005 in Oxford) is an English composer, pianist, violinist, and child prodigy. At age six she composed her first piano sonata. At age seven, she completed her first major composition, the opera The Sweeper of Dreams. Aged nine, she wrote a concerto for violin and orchestra, which she premiered in a 2015 performance.

At the age of ten she completed her first full-length opera, Cinderella, which had its European premiere in Vienna on 29 December 2016 under the patronage of conductor Zubin Mehta.
