Rossini’s last opera brings together the ever topical subject of foreign occupation, as stark and oppressive as a jagged Alpine peak, with sublime moments of uplifting hope and serenity. Though better known for his comedies, Rossini reveals the more serious side of his character with a story that twists, turns and plays with our emotions. This production will see Swiss traditional folk costumes set against stiff, grey Austrian uniforms. The beautifully choreographed ballet sequences add to the contrast.

Director: David Pountney
