The Italian Girl in Algiers is an operatic dramma giocoso in two acts by Gioachino Rossini to an Italian libretto by Angelo Anelli. The music is characteristic of Rossini's style, remarkable for its fusion of sustained, manic energy with elegant, pristine melodies!
The plot is introduced with an ominous opening in a lively overture. The Italian girl, Isabella, is searching for her lost lover, Lindoro, who has been enslaved by the Bey of Algiers. The ship she's on is shipwrecked in Algiers, and the Bey falls in love with her but is eventually outwitted as Lindoro and Isabella sail away together. Come see our show to find out more!
Did You Know: Rossini wrote L'Italiana in Algeri when he was 21 and stated that he composed the opera in 18 days!
