Notes and Editorial Reviews

Also available on Blu-ray

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 has transferred Rossini's light-hearted one-act operatic farce to a modern-day theme park, complete with popcorn stand and balloons. 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
Read more life, making this 'clever production' (New York Times) one not to be missed.
