Editorial Reviews

The renowned Rossini expert Alberto Zedda, inspired by the creative brilliance of Pier Luigi Pizzi's production, leads a fizzing account of Rossini's 1812 comic opera - the composer's first La Scala commission. Filmed in 2007 with High Definition cameras and recorded in true surround sound.

Press Reviews
"An elegant comedy, brimming with intelligence and expressive beauty, which had a colossal success at its opening in Pesaro... It is a heavenly blessing to listen to this Rossini ... This production has two particular strengths which bring it to the level of exceptionality: the first one is the musical direction by Alberto Zedda, the great Rossinian maestro of our time...He is just extraordinary...The second is the stage and set direction by Pier Luigi Pizzi. The Milan maestro is the Prince of theatre architecture...The singers believe the story and their performance is superb, both theatrically and musically." (El Pais)

"Updating the comedy to a modern holiday villa in the Romagna, hidden among tall, cool pine trees, we have a cast of venal freeloaders lounging round the pool, snacking off endless trays of food and slurping the count's best vintages...Alberto Zedda keeps both plot and music bubbling along deliciously. " (BBC Music Magazine)
