Notes & Reviews:

Composed between 'The Barber of Seville' (NXS 8660027) and 'Cinderella' (NXS 8660191), Rossini's only Neapolitan comic opera 'La gazzetta' (The Newspaper) was based on a highly popular romantic comedy by Carlo Goldoni, yet has languished until the publication of the new critical edition on which this recording is based. Now revealed as a delicious entertainment satirizing the rôle of the media, it involves two young women, their lovers and fathers, who are beset by the arrival of disguised Quakers and a Turkish masquerade all the result of an advertisement!

Notes & Reviews:

Recording information: Kurhaus Bad Wildbad, Germany (2007-07-14&2007-07-19&2007-).
