A production of UNITEL, Munich

Rossini’s famous comic masterpiece was filmed in 1972 and is based on a production from La Scala. With star soprano Teresa Berganza as the cunning heroine Rosina and Hermann Prey in the title role, director Jean-Pierre Ponnelle has the perfect allies to unfold the full dramatic potential of Rossini’s approach. With Claudio Abbado conducting the Orchestra of La Scala and the strong cast of singers, most of them the foremost Rossini interpreters of their time, this production is a music highlight in the Rossini catalogue.
