Act I
In fairy-tale times. Clorinda and Tisbe, daughters of Don Magnifico, are in the middle of one of their usual arguments. Their stepsister Angelina, who is called Cenerentola (Cinderella) and serves as the family maid, sings her favorite song, about a king who married a common girl. Suddenly Alidoro, tutor to the prince Don Ramiro, enters, dressed as a beggar. The stepsisters want to send him away, but Cenerentola gives him bread and coffee. Courtiers announce that Ramiro will soon pay a visit: he is looking for the most beautiful girl in the land and will hold a ball to choose his bride. Magnifico hopes that it will be one of the stepsisters: marriage to a wealthy man is the only way to save the family fortune. When everybody has left, Ramiro enters alone, dressed in his servant’s clothes so he can freely observe the prospective brides. Cenerentola returns, and the two are immediately attracted to each other. He asks her who she is, and Cenerentola, confused, tries to explain, then runs away. Finally, the “prince” arrives—in fact Ramiro’s valet, Dandini, in disguise. Magnifico, Clorinda, and Tisbe fall over themselves flattering him, and he invites them to the ball. Cenerentola asks to be taken along but Magnifico refuses. Ramiro notes how badly Cenerentola is treated. Alidoro says there should be a third daughter in the house but Magnifico claims she has died. Left alone with Cenerentola, Alidoro tells her he will take her to the ball and explains that God will reward her for her good heart.

Dandini shares his negative opinion of the two sisters with the prince. But both men are confused, since Alidoro has spoken well of one of Magnifico’s daughters. Clorinda and Tisbe appear again, following Dandini, who still pretends to be the prince. When he offers Ramiro as a husband to the sister the prince does not marry, they are outraged at the idea of marrying a servant. Alidoro enters with a beautiful unknown lady who, strangely, resembles Cenerentola. Unable to make sense of the situation, they all sit down to supper, feeling as if in a dream.

第一幕
童話世界中。唐·曼尼菲科家的兩個女兒克洛琳達和蒂斯貝正像往常一樣爭論不休。而她們的異父姐妹,被稱為灰姑娘的安潔莉娜正像僕人一樣為家裡幹活,嘴裡還唱著她最愛的歌,歌詞講述的是一位國王與一個普通女孩在一起的故事。突然,化妝成乞丐的唐·拉米羅王子的老師阿利多羅來到他們家門前。兩個繼姐妹想要趕走他,但灰姑娘卻塞給了他一些麵包和咖啡。王子的侍臣們宣佈,拉米羅王子不久即將出訪:他要尋找這片土地上最美的人兒,並將舉行一場盛大的舞會,希望能選出他未來的新娘。曼尼菲科希望他的兩個女兒中能有一個中選:嫁給有錢人是拯救這個家族命運的唯一方式。當眾人離開之後,拉米羅穿著僕人的衣服獨自走進來,好從容地觀察這些想要成為他新娘的姑娘們。此時進來的灰姑娘與王子彼此一見鍾情。拉米羅詢問她的名字,困惑的灰姑娘試著說明,繼而慌張地跑開。最後,由拉米羅的僕從丹迪尼假扮的「王子」登場。曼尼菲科、克洛琳達和蒂斯貝諂媚地迎了上去,於是丹迪尼邀請他們參加舞會。灰姑娘懇請繼父帶上自己,卻被曼尼菲科拒絕了。拉米羅注意到灰姑娘遭受著極糟的對待。阿利多羅提起,這個家裡應該還有一個女兒,但曼尼菲科卻謊稱她已經死了。單獨留下的阿利多羅找到灰姑娘,告訴她他將帶她參加舞會,上帝會獎賞她的好心腸。

丹迪尼向王子訴說了自己對兩姐妹的不良印象。但是兩個人都陷入了困惑,因為阿利多羅對曼尼菲科的其中一位女兒讚賞有加。克洛琳達和蒂斯貝再次出現,並跟在繼續扮作王子的丹迪尼身後。當丹迪尼表示他只能娶其中一位,並讓她們中的另一位嫁給拉米羅時,兩姐妹卻對於要嫁給一位侍從而氣憤不已。這時,阿利多羅帶著一位不知名的美麗姑娘走進來,奇怪的是,這位姑娘與灰姑娘驚人地相似。無法理解當下狀況的眾人如夢似幻地坐下,一同共進晚餐。

Act II
Magnifico fears that the arrival of the stranger could ruin his daughters’ chances to marry the prince. Cenerentola, tired of being pursued by Dandini, tells him that she is in love with his servant. Overhearing this, Ramiro is overjoyed and steps forward. Cenerentola, however, tells him that she will return home and does not want him to follow her. If he really cares for her, she says, he will find her. The prince resolves to win the mysterious girl.

Meanwhile Magnifico, who still thinks that Dandini is the prince, confronts him, insisting that he decide which of his daughters he will marry. When Dandini reveals that he is in fact the prince’s servant, Magnifico is furious. 

Magnifico and the sisters return home in a bad mood and order Cenerentola, again in rags, to prepare supper. During a thunderstorm, Alidoro arranges for Ramiro’s carriage to break down in front of Magnifico’s mansion so that the prince has to take refuge inside. Cenerentola and Ramiro recognize each other, as everybody comments on the situation. Ramiro threatens Magnifico and his daughters, who are unwilling to accept defeat, but Cenerentola asks him to forgive them.

At the prince’s palace, Ramiro and Cenerentola celebrate their wedding. Magnifico tries to win the favor of the new princess, but she asks only to be acknowledged at last as his daughter. Born to misfortune, she has seen her life change and declares that the days of sitting by the fire are over.

第二幕
曼尼菲科擔心這位陌生姑娘的到來會破壞他一雙女兒的好事。而灰姑娘在丹迪尼的再三追問之下告訴他,她已經愛上了他的侍從。偷聽到他們對話的拉米羅喜出望外地走上前來。可是灰姑娘卻告訴拉米羅她得回家,並希望他不要跟著她。她說,如果拉米羅心中真的有她,那麼他一定能找到她。王子暗暗下定決心,一定要贏得這位神秘姑娘的芳心。

與此同時,曼尼菲科仍然與假扮王子的丹迪尼相持不下,堅持要丹迪尼決定要娶他的哪一位女兒。而當丹迪尼揭穿自己作為王子侍從的真實身份時,曼尼菲科勃然大怒。

曼尼菲科和他的女兒們氣衝衝地回到家中,並命令重新穿回破舊衣衫的灰姑娘為他們準備晚餐。暴風雨之中,阿利多羅駕著拉米羅的馬車停在了曼尼菲科家的門前,以便讓王子進入屋內躲雨。灰姑娘與拉米羅在眾人對這一情況議論紛紛時相互認出了彼此。拉米羅聲稱要懲戒仍然不願接受現實的曼尼菲科和他的女兒們,但灰姑娘懇求他原諒他們。

在王子的宮殿中,拉米羅和灰姑娘舉行了盛大的婚禮。曼尼菲科試圖討好這位新王妃,但灰姑娘最終只要求他承認自己是他的女兒。生逢不幸的灰姑娘迎來了她人生的轉折,她在火爐邊度過的生涯也隨之一去不返。
