The tale of poor, beleaguered Cinderella has been so often told, that most of us could act out her floor-scrubbing and shoe-losing in our sleep (though it's not a popular practice). Opera Louisiane's take shouldn't be hard to recognize then, even though Cinderella loses a bracelet instead of a shoe and the prince and his valet arrive at the ball disguised as each other. The prince charms, the stepsisters remain oafish and snide, and the stepmother? Yeah, she's still plenty evil. The family-friendly opera retelling will be sung in English, as part of the Young People's Opera Program. 3 pm at First Baptist Church, 529 Convention Street. Free for children eighteen-and-under and students with a college ID; $16.50 for adults. (225) 344-0334 or operalouisiane.com.
