Music & Tell Episode #3 Saturday, May 23rd at 2:00pm
Discovering Mrs. Rossini
This session of Music & Tell will tell the story of the wife and muse of composer Gioachino Rossini of Barber of Seville fame, Spanish-born 19th century diva Isabella Colbran who was the toast of the opera stages of Europe in the early 19th century. This afternoon will tell the tale of love, passion and intrigue at the San Carlo Opera in Naples, woven with excerpts of music from Rossini’s Neapolitan period that Isabella premiered as well as some of her own compositions. This concert is based on a production presented by Divaria Productions in 2015 in collaboration with Italian musicologist Professor Sergio Ragni, author of Isabella Colbran, Isabella Rossini, edited by Zecchini in Italy.
Led by Ashley Galvani Bell, soprano
