Rossini operista a Parigi


Editorial news

A book that focuses on the five intense years Rossini spent in Paris, welcomed as a star by the French cultural and political world of the time: his significant operatic productions (William Tell, The Journey to Reims, Moses in Egypt, Count Ory, The Siege of Corinth, The Lady of the Lake), his relationships with impresarios, singers, conductors, influential politicians, composers, envious colleagues, and his private life.
