With Alex Esposito (Faraone), Olga Senderskaya (Amaltea), Dmitry Korchak (Osiride), Sonia Ganassi (Elcia), Enea Scala (Mambre), Riccardo Zanellato (Mosè). Many operas of the past centuries were inspired - as later Hollywood - by sections of the Old Testament. In 1818, Rossini set to music the story of the exodus of the Israelites from Egypt. Director Graham Vick staged the biblical story before the current political background of the Middle East conflict.
