Let us now venture into the Saarländer Staatstheater’s darkly somber production of Gioacchino Rossini’s final opera, the ever-popular, ever-mythical, and ever-epic grand opera Guillaume Tell starring the veteran Italian dramatic baritone, Davide Damiani, as the main hero, and the ravishing Japanese basso cantante/profondo, Hiroshi Matsui, as the villainous Gessler. Enjoy the review and let me know your opinions as well.
Small in the plot, but magnificent in musical prowess, especially evidenced by such astounding young artists.
An epic story of faith and fate weaved not only by Rossini’s great music but also La Fura dels Baus fascinating choreography.
Another rare Rossini opera and this time it’s about a noble young man on a mission to rescue his darling wife.
Le grande e meravigliose Signore Joyce DiDonato and Daniela Barcellona stand tall as Semiramide and Arsace!
