Matilde di Shabran

Thursday 23 October 2008 – Tuesday 11 November 2008

Introduction and prices

Juan Diego Flórez blazed onto the stage with brilliant bel canto
singing in Matilde di Shabran in Pesaro in 1996, then shot to
worldwide stardom. Now Flórez’s stunning performance and a new
Pesaro staging, with period costume, come to The Royal Opera,
complemented by a galaxy of star singers under the baton of Carlo
Rizzi. The music has all the classic exuberance of early Rossini,
written in 1821 yet until recently an all-but-forgotten

The plot is melodramatic with its tongue firmly and deliberately
in its cheek, and the sheer virtuosity of the vocal writing runs
throughout the beautiful contrasts of solos and ensembles –
especially fine for the Act I conclusion. All this makes for one of
the most exciting of evenings possible with Rossini and The Royal
Opera. It’s an early highlight of the whole Season and essential
for all lovers of bel canto opera.
