Rossini's Tancredi is a fully-staged opera with orchestra, sung in Italian with English translation supertitles. Presented in 2 acts with one intermission. This will be the New Mexico Premiere of Rossini's little-known masterwork.
Set against the exotic backdrop of war, intrigue, and conquest in medieval Sicily, Tancredi follows a love triangle of two powerful women and the man they both love. Filled with some of the most incredible vocal fireworks ever written by Rossini, it's a tour-de-force of bel canto vocal acrobatics you won't want to miss. Maestro Anthony Barrese conducts.
