About

Antonio Pappano, Music Director of The Royal Opera, conducts Rossini's epic final masterpiece of French grand opera with an all-star cast that includes Gerald Finley in the title role, alongside John Osborn, Malin Byström and Sofia Fomina. The story of the legendary Swiss patriot Guillaume Tell, determined to free Switzerland from Austrian rule, is told through magnificent arias, ensembles and choruses, atmospheric musical evocations of the Swiss landscape, particularly in the famous overture, and dramatic episodes of great emotional power.

‘Gerald Finley articulates Tell’s agonies with immense authority.’
- The Evening Standard

‘… at its best, the production is very powerful.’ - The Evening Standard
