Bel canto master Juan Diego Flórez portrays the dashing Prince Ramiro in Rossini's "Cinderella" story, "La Cenerentola," to be presented as the final performance in The Met: Live in HD series. The title role is sung by American mezzo-soprano Joyce DiDonato, whose performance was described by The New York Times as "dazzling, plucky and endearingly poignant."
