Pauline Viardot was a prominent French mezzo-soprano, teacher, and composer. During her singing career, she was famous for her extended vocal range and many character portrayals in works by Chopin, Berloz, Saint-Saëns, and Meyerbeer. Her chamber opera, Cendrillon, premiered in Paris in 1904 when Ms. Viardot was 83 years of age. The score, a retelling of Perrault’s Cinderella, includes seven soloists and chorus with piano accompaniment.

Performed by the Barnard-Columbia Chamber Singers.
