Rossini's 1814 comic opera reversed the idea of The Italian in Algiers. Prosdocimo believes that adding a Turkish element into his new comedy would be advantageous and decides to engineer a complicated intrigue between Fiorilla, her worried husband Geroinio and the Turk Selim. Prosdocimo, a toiling poet, finds his muse in the flirtatious Fiorilla and her husband, Geronio. When a dashing Turkish stranger arrives, a comedy of unrequted love and confused identity ensues. Rossini's deliciously layered plot sees games go wrong and lessons learned.

Performers Ildebrando D'Arcangelo (Selim the Turk), Aleksandra Kurzak (Fiorella), Alessandro Corbelli (Don Geronio), Thomas Allen (Prosdocimo), Colin Lee (Don Narciso), Kai Ruutel (Zaida), Steven Ebel (Albazar), Leah-Marian Jones.
