Gioachino Rossini: L'Italiana in Algeri
 Teatro Regio, Turin

Teatro Regio Orchestra and Chorus
Daniele Rustioni, conductor

CAST:  Daniela Pini (Isabella); Antonio Siragusa (Lindoro); Lorenzo Regazzo (Mustafà); Linda Campanella (Elvira); Roberto de Candia (Taddeo); Alessia Nadin (Zulma)

The plot is more than a little bit silly -- not to mention politically incorrect in the extreme!  But nobody did wackiness better, more beautifully, or with a finer instinct for pure comedy than Rossini displays in this sparkling score.
