Maybe you’ve come across this plot before: a damsel-in-distress is saved by a knight in shining armour. This is the standard ‘fairy tale’ we all learned as children. Yet the surprising thing about Adelaide di Borgogna is that the story is true.

The dramma serio was written during Rossini’s miraculous 21st year (1813), when he produced in total an incredible four operas. The other three (the comedies, Il signor Bruschino and L’italiana in Algeri plus the tragedy Tancredi) indicate not only the fertility of his inventive powers but also the staggering quality of his youthful composition. Rossini fans will recognise the overture to Aureliano, recycled in three other scores, most notably Il barbiere di Siviglia! More Info

Ermione is without doubt one of the greatest operas by Rossini, despite it being perhaps the least immediately successful: Ermione was received with incomprehension at its sole performance in 1819 and was never revived in Rossini’s lifetime.

Rossini’s La donna del lago (Naples, 1819) was not only the first Italian opera to be based on a work by Sir Walter Scott, the narrative poem The Lady of the Lake: it was also a milestone in the development of romanticism in Italian opera.
