Description

The Italian Girl in Algiers

by Gioachino Rossini

Sounds.

Vocal fireworks, riotously funny ensembles, charming tunes—Rossini’s name is synonymous with all of these and more. Get ready for spirited arias and one of the best overtures he ever wrote, all matched by unerring comic instincts.

Sights.

Literally popping out of a stage-sized child’s storybook, this clever production is inspired by the innocence and style of the 1920s. Witness the fantasy world where anything can (and does) happen as the resourceful Italian Girl arrives on the exotic shores of Algeria.

Stories.

In trying to free her lover Lindoro from the pompous and lecherous despot Mustafa, Isabella finds herself captured. She must use all of her womanly wiles to elude Mustafa’s advances, outwit the bumbling villains and save the day.
