Theater Basel | La Cenerentola (Cinderella)

La Cenerentola (a melodramma giocoso in two acts by Gioachino Rossini) plays at the Theater Basel.
We all know the story of Cinderella, where she is forced by her step-father to work as a maid in the families house while her step-sisters get spoiled and humiliate her all the time.
The prince, who is trying to find himself a wife, falls in love with her, in spite of all the effort of her sisters Clorinda and Tisbe to convince him that one of them is the perfect match for him.
In Antonio Latella's version there is no magic tree, but a bunch of giant dark flowers on stage, there are no pigeons but human-sized rag dolls that are constantly on stage, either strapped to the singers, placed somewhere on stage or piled up in the between the giant flowers.
We like the unconventional production, the story is told in a very humorous and light-hearted way and there is more than one unexpected added detail during the show. The music is absolutely beautiful and the singers are brilliant and the moral remains the same: if you look with your heart, what matters most are the inner values.

Annemarie Börlind | Sensitive Cream Mask

The Annemarie Börlind Sensitive Cream Mask provides intensive care for sensitive skin.
The texture of the mask is very soft and rich when applying it to the skin it immediately feels like a protective layer over the skin.
It contains currant seed oil and balloon vine extract, to reduce irritation of the skin strengthen it from within.
After leaving it on for 10-15 minutes, gently massage it into the skin.
What is special about the sensitive cream mask is that it gets absorbed completely by the skin, leaving it nourished, calmed and incredibly soft.
The scent is tender and very relaxing.
For us this mask is perfect during a stressful time, or during the cold season when the skin is stressed and maybe even irritated.
It has an immediate calming effect on the skin and using it really is a wellness experience, not only calming the skin but also the mind.
