A Night at the Opera

L’Italiana in Algeri

This year, the Blackwater Valley Opera Festival is delighted to present Gioachino Rossini’s tale of intrigue, comedic mischance, and the triumph of love – and of strong women! L’Italiana in Algeri was premiered in Venice in 1813, and has been delighting audiences for more than 200 years.

Fusing sustained energy, with elegant melodies, the opera tells the tale of Elvira and Isabella, who must together make a plan to ensure that love will conquer all. Elvira loves Mustafa, and Isabella loves Lindoro. Of course it wouldn’t be a Rossini opera if the path to happiness was smooth, but as it is a Rossini opera, there is plenty of wonderful music along the way to the final rousing resolution.

Presenting L’Italiana in Algeri over three nights at the Blackwater Valley Opera Festival.
