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. Sung in Italian with English surtitles. Running time 3 hours

Performers Cecilia Bartoli (Fiorilla), Ildebrando D'Arcangelo (Selim), Alessandro Corbelli (Don Geronio), Thomas Allen (Prosdocimo), Barry Banks (Don Narcisco), Heather Shipp (Zaida), James Edwards (Albazar).
