Notes & Reviews:
Welcome to 'Rossiniland': where the 1800s meet the 2000s, and tourists are free to wander and gawp at the scintillating spectacle taking place around them. Innovative theatre company Teatro Sotterraneo transferred Rossini's light-hearted one-act operatic farce to a modern-day theme park. Mistaken identities and general confusion abound, all exaggerated to a delightful degree by Rossini's forward-thinking comedic effects. Helped by outlandish costumes and off-the-wall stage design - created by the Accademia di Belle Arti di Urbino - a polished cast serves to bring Rossini's engaging drama to life, making this 'clever production' (New York Times) one not to be missed. Extra features include The Making of Il Signor Bruschino and a Cast Gallery. ''Young Italian conductor Daniele Rustioni was a lively participant in the proceedings as were members of the Orchestra Sinfonica G. Rossini.'' (Opera Today)Notes & Reviews:
