Performers Conductor Ensemble Composer

Notes & Reviews:

The third of the one-act farces Rossini composed for the Teatro S. Moisè, La scala di seta "The Silken Ladder" is probably the best-known, at least by name, because its overture has become one of the most popular of all Rossini`s contributions to that genre, a lively perpetuo moto that anticipates the energy of the comedy to follow. The secret marriage of Giulia and Dorvil goes much against the wishes of Giulia`s tutor, Dormont. Each night Dorvil visits his wife by climbing up a silken ladder she lowers from her balcony. The disguises, romantic confusions and door-slammings that occur in only 90 minutes are breathtaking!
