Mosè in Egitto (Rossini Opera Festival)

From the prestigious Rossini Festival in Pesaro comes a thought-provoking
interpretation of Rossini's azione tragico-sacra "Mosè in Egitto". Topping
the cast of high-caliber vocalists are Sonia Ganassi and Dmitry Korchak as
two lovers drawn into the political turmoil of their time. Director Graham
Vick's interpretation centers on a condemnation of all religious
fundamentalism. Designed by Stuart Nunn, the set evokes a bombed-out
edifice and provides a chilling setting for Rossini's haunting melodies.
With the gifted Roberto Abbado on the podium, "the music is free to carry
its timeless message" (La Stampa).
