Notes and Editorial Reviews

This Cologne Opera production of one of Rossini's most brilliant compositions was directed by Michael Hampe and boasts a star-studded cast with Ileana Cotrubas, Carlos Feller, David Kuebler and Alberto Rinaldi. Rossini's opera is a perennial favorite and tells the story of a servant girl accused of stealing a silver spoon. She is brought to trial by the Justice of the Peace, whose advances she has rejected, and she is condemned to death. Tragedy turns to comedy when, just before the execution is due to take place, it is discovered that the real thief is a magpie. Bruno Bartoletti conducts this lively and colorful production designed by Mauro Pagano.
