    This performance occurred long before the rediscovery of the missing quintet music in 2012 so the corresponding dialogue is, unfortunately, rendered as recitative.

Love your reviews (the ones I read).
    Whose reviews are you referencing?

    Welcome to Opera Lively, Metalluk; glad to have another Rossini fan here. Do post your own reviews, please!

    Yes, welcome, Metalluk!

    I don't watch many DVDs, but listen to a lot of Rossini, who is something of an underappreciated genius.

    In his book, The Bel Canto Operas, Charles Osborne noted that Rossini and Beethoven were the most popular composers of the early 19th century

    Last night, I was surfing You Tube on the smart (?) TV and found quite by accident, a two part, three hour Rossini Gala from a Lincoln Center telecast from 1992, at the bicentennial of the composer's birth. Decent picture and sound. There were many fascinating aspects, not the least of which was a discussion between Dr. Phillip Gossett and Marilyn Horne on the then-early part of the Rossini Renaissance. Then there was Deborah Voigt (pre weight loss) tossing off amazing coloratura in the soprano/mezzo duet from Zelmira. Recommended. Add a nice bottle of wine and one has a near perfect evening.
