“An elegant comedy, brimming with intelligence andexpressive beauty, which had a colossal success at itsopening in Pesaro… It is a heavenly blessing to listen to this Rossini … This production has two particular strengths which bring it to the level of exceptionality: the first one is the musical direction by Alberto Zedda, the great Rossinian maestro of our time…He is just extraordinary…The second is the stage and set direction by Pier Luigi Pizzi. The Milan maestro is the Prince of theatre architecture…The singers believe the story and their performance is superb, both theatrically and musically.” (El Pais)
