Rossini: William Tell / Andrew Foster-Williams, Michael Spyres, Nahuel Di Pierro, Tara Stafford, Faffaele Facciola. Antonino Fogliano (live, Rossini Festival, 2013) [DVD]

Notes & Reviews:

Musicians and critics realized soon after its 1829 Paris Opéra premiere that Rossini's Guillaume Tell was a far-reaching masterpiece. And yet some of the features that made it so unique have militated against it entering the standard repertory. The 1992 critical edition made a "complete" Guillaume Tell, even an ur-Tell possible, but still not many companies have performed the work without substantial cuts. The first complete DVD release of the work's original version finds the Rossini in Wildbad Festival, celebrating its 25th anniversary, performing Tell for the first time in its entirety.
