Sigismondo (Rossini Opera Festival)

Filled with beautiful, original music, Rossini's rarely performed
"Sigismondo" was resurrected at the 2010 Rossini Opera Festival in
Pesaro. The press called the production a "perfect symbiosis of music and
stage work" (Quotidiano Nazionale). Director Damiano Michieletto sets
the first act in a realistic "insane asylum" of past times; the second take
place in an elegant palace. Mezzo Daniela Barcellona portrays the mad
King Sigismondo with fierce intensity and flowing coloraturas; also
outstanding are Olga Peretyatko, Antonino Siragusa and Andrea Concetti.
Leading the orchestra with supreme musicality is Michele Mariotti,
principal conductor of the Teatro Comunale di Bologna and acclaimed
maestro at La Scala, the Met and other leading houses.
