Rossini’s Tancredi is a fully-staged opera with orchestra, sung in Italian with English translation supertitles and presented in two 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 the romance between the exiled soldier Tancredi and the beautiful Amenaide. When Amenaide is sentenced to death for a crime she did not commit, a disguised Tancredi fights to defend both love and honor.
Filled with some of the most incredible vocal fireworks ever written by Rossini, this is a tour-de-force of bel canto vocal acrobatics that you won’t want to miss. Maestro Anthony Barrese conducts.
