About

The enduring popularity of Rossiniís operas is a testament to their wit and inventiveness, every overture a superb portrait of each ensuing drama.

There is none more popular than the farcical comedy of Il barbiere di Siviglia, but themes of flirtation and disguise can also be found in Il Turco in Italia, contrasting with the heroism and revenge of Armida and the cunning exploits of Le Comte Ory.

This edition, of which this is the final instalment, has gained wide critical acclaim, with Volume 2 (8570934) described as ďan unalloyed winnerĒ by ClassicsToday.com.
