An audience in Vienna has given a standing ovation to 11-year-old British composer Alma Deutscher at the premiere of her opera Cinderella. The girl, who says she gets musical inspiration while skipping,  reimagined the tale of Cinderella, setting it in an opera house run by the wicked stepmother.  Deutscher's Cinderella is two-and-a-half hours long, and the musical score runs to 237 pages.  Did I mention she's 11?
