Gioachino Rossini: Aureliano in Palmira



Shipping time: In stock | Expected delivery 1-2 days | Free UK Delivery
Aureliano in Palmira is unique in Rossini’s oeuvre for its inclusion of the only role, Arsace, that
Rossini wrote for the castrato voice. Its tale of tragic defeat and the ultimate nobility and triumph of
love in seemingly impossible circumstances is a refined and highly innovative example of his style.
Set amidst turbulent times in the Roman Empire, Aureliano in Palmira is packed with sublime arias,
duets of haunting beauty (notably the three given to Arsace and Zenobia) and excellent choruses,
Rossini himself considering this work as ‘divine music’. Even after initial success he re-used many of its melodies in later operas, most famously in Il barbiere di Siviglia.
