Rossini: Ricciardo e Zoraide

To celebrate the 200th anniversary of the premiere of the Rossini rarity, the Rossini Opera Festival in Pesaro staged Ricciardo e Zoraide with an all-star cast.

Juan Diego Flórez makes his debut as the crusader Ricciardo, giving a masterclass in bel canto (Bachtrack).

The South African soprano Pretty Yende radiant and richly expressive (Financial Times) as Zoraide proves that she is a virtuosa in Rossini singing (Neue Musikzeitung).

On the 150th anniversary of the composers death and 200 years after its premiere, Ricciardo e Zoraide rings out with an artistic quality that is second to none, thanks to the skills of an absolute Champions League ensemble (Online Merker).
