We all know the story about the apple, that the overture was the theme tune for the Lone Ranger and that Rossini was a comic genius. But there is much more to William Tell than any of this would suggest. William Tell is a spectacular, uplifting epic and an urgent hymn to national freedom in the face of oppression. Tell is the final work of a consummate dramatist and possibly the greatest achievement of his career.


Music: Rossini
