ROSSINI: Torvaldo de Dorliska

Shipping time: In stock | Expected delivery 1-2 days | Free UK Delivery
Rossini's semi-serious opera 'Torvaldo e Dorliska' belongs, like Beethoven's 'Fidelio', to the genre of 'rescue' opera. The hero and heroine of the title both succumb to the power of the villainous Duke, who has designs on the newly married Dorliska. Both are saved in the nick of time by the castle custodian Giorgio, who sends to the absent governor for soldiers to put matters to rights.

Highlights include the heartfelt passages for the two lovers, such as the aria 'Dove son? chi m'aita?', in which Dorliska expresses her despair at the news of the supposed death of her husband, and the short 'duettin' from Act II, when they take their leave of each other.

This disc was recorded live on 10th, 12th and 17th July, 2003, in the Kursaal, Bad Wildbad, Germany, as part of the 'Rossini In Wildbad' festival.
