Rossini: Sigismondo

Shipping time: In stock | Expected delivery 1-2 days | Free UK Delivery
This live recording of Rossini's rarely heard opera Sigismondo comes from the 2016 Rossini in Wildbad Festival. The opera is not filled with Rossini's distinctive musical landmarks and wonderful duets, for which blame is usually laid at the feet of librettist
Giuseppe Foppa. Today, however, we can appreciate how this tale
of an abused wife who retains her love for her deranged husband
pushes the boundaries of the grand narrative tradition into a more
searching psychological drama. An emphasis on madness and guilt
and coloratura expressions of inner feeling results in a fascinating
meeting of convention with experiment, Rossini’s subsequent re-use
of his music for Sigismondo in later hit operas being ample evidence
of its intrinsic quality.
