La Cenerentola, a dramma giocoso in two acts to a libretto by Jacopo Ferretti, was first performed in Rome at the Teatro Valle on January 25, 1817.
"Rossini wrote La Cenerentola in a little over three weeks in January 1817... [Following its premiere, the opera] proved to be enormously popular in Italy and abroad. It was performed in Barcelona in April 1818, in London at the King’s Theatre, Haymarket, in January 1820, and in Vienna, in German, the following August. Performances followed in Paris (1822), Berlin (1825), Moscow (1825), Buenos Aires (1826) and New York (1826), where it was given by Manuel García’s company. In February 1844 it became the first opera to be performed in Australia... Like many Rossini operas, La Cenerentola was performed only intermittently in the years following the composer’s death in 1868, but it began to return to the repertory in the 1920s and early 1930s."
