* IdiotBall: Prince Ramiro. In Act I, Cenerentola tries to explain her difficult family situation, with "a father who isn't a father" and her two half-sisters. Alidoro later appears and asks about Don Magnifico's third daughter. In Act II, Ramiro is surprised by Tisbe and Clorinda's terrible attitudes because Alidoro told him to look for his bride in Don Magnifico's house. He witnessed all that and still utterly fails to put two and two together.

He witnessed all that and still utterly fails to put two and two together. He also fails to realize that the mysterious lady at the ball is the "servant girl" who charmed him earlier, despite noticing how much she looks ''and'' sounds like her though to be fair, Magnifico and the sisters make the same mistake, even though they live with her.

Added DiffLines:

* OldBeggarTest: Alidoro first visits the house disguised as a beggar to test the worthiness of the young women. Tisbe and Clorinda try to get rid of him, but Cenerentola sneaks him something to eat and drink, and thereby earns herself his assistance.


When he meets Cenerentola, he's immediately smitten, but he has to leave her behind as Don Magnifico won't allow her to accompany them to the ball.
As soon as they leave, however, Alidoro, philosopher and the prince's teacher, arrives and helps Cenerentola go to the ball, where her beauty stuns the court. When the fake prince tries to court her, she refuses his advances, proclaiming her love for his valet. Ramiro, hiding nearby, reveals himself, but she orders him not to follow her: he has to look for her and see her regular situation, then he can decide if he still wants her. She gives him a bracelet and keeps an identical one on herself so he'll be able to recognize her.

* FairyGodmother: Rossini chose a non-magical resolution to the story due to the limitations of special effects available at the time - thus Alidoro, philosopher and the prince's tutor, was born. Recent productions play with it by implying that Alidoro is actually ''Rossini himself'' sent as an agent of Heaven.
