Rossini, Matilde di Shabran
From the Rossini Opera Festival Pesaro
From the Rossini Opera Festival Pesaro: "Matilde di Shabran" by Gioachino Rossini (1792-1868). Conductor: Michele Mariotti - Stage director: Mario Martone. With Olga Peretyatko (Matilde di Shabran), Juan Diego Flórez (Corradino), Anna Goryachova (Edoardo), Simón Orfila (Ginardo), Chiara Chialli (Contessa d'Arco), Nicola Alaimo (Aliprando). Rossini's last "opera semiseria" was given its world premiere performance in Rome in 1821. A genuine international hit, it was staged in Vienna, London, Paris, New York and throughout Italy before 1830. Knight Corradino has withdrawn to his castle and professes to hate his fellow humans. When he meets the young and beautiful Matilde, however, he experiences unknown emotions that have nothing to do with hatred...
