Performers Conductor Ensembles Composer

Notes & Reviews:

Arthaus presents an impressive staging of one of Rossini's opera masterpieces. This production, staged by La Scala Milan is conducted by Riccardo Muti. Moise et Pharaon - Rossini's re-adaptation of the story of Moses in Egypt - emphasizes the dramatic moments of the biblical account beautifully and also demonstrates the composer's mastery of the French tradition: solos and choral work are superb compositions, the duets are expressive and touching. Including an extensive ballet scene at the beginning of Act III and featuring a preeminent international cast of singer-actors – Erwin Schrott, Barbara Frittoli, Sonia Ganassi - this recording brings a Rossini experience of the highest rank onto the screen.
