Notes & Reviews:
"What a pleasure to listen to Demetrio e Polibio", wrote major Italian daily La Stampa after the premiere of Rossini's very first opera at the 2010 Rossini Opera Festival in Pesaro, attributing it "an undeniable fascination". The work was given its first performance in Rome in 1812.
Gioachino Rossini's Demetrio E Polibio... arrived from ArtHaus in a terrific stage version with Corrado Rovaris conducting the show at the Rossini Opera Festival in 2010 in Pesaro. This first-ever opera by the legend is about family, identity, secrets and royal power in a truly underrated work that should have and deserves much more attention than it gets... the singing is great.
