About

Composed between The Barber of Seville and Cinderella, Rossini’s only Neapolitan comic opera La gazzetta (The Newspaper) was based on a highly popular romantic comedy by Carlo Goldoni, yet has languished until the publication of the new critical edition on which this recording is based.

Now revealed as a delicious entertainment satirising the rôle of the media, it involves two young women, their lovers and fathers, who are beset by the arrival of disguised Quakers and a Turkish masquerade, all as the result of an advertisement!
