    The Italian Girl in Algiers

    "The Italian Girl in Algiers" is considered one of Rossini's comic masterpieces - on par with and in some ways even surpassing his Barber of Seville. Written when he was 21 at full-speed inspiration it combines his fast paced comic energy with elegant melodies delightfully orchestrated. Rossini constantly catches us by surprise as he interweaves the richness of his more serious music into his "opera buffa" style. ...

    "The Italian Girl in Algiers" is considered one of Rossini's comic masterpieces - on par with and in some ways even surpassing his Barber of Seville. Written when he was 21 at full-speed inspiration it combines his fast paced comic energy with elegant melodies delightfully orchestrated. Rossini constantly catches us by surprise as he interweaves the richness of his more serious music into his "opera buffa" style. Because he created such incredibly demanding roles for his leading lady and her coterie of admirers, audiences rarely get a chance to experience this opera live. That makes BMO's production - sung in English by exceptional singers - a special "treat!"

      We loved everything about this performance on July 27 in the Tsai center: venue, stage scenery, singing, orchestra, and acting. It is great to have a live orchestra.
