Siege de Corinthe (Le) [Opera] (Regazzo, Cullagh, Spyres, Sala, Ramos, Poznan Camerata Bach Choir, Virtuosi Brunensis, Tingaud)

Rossini adapted his own Italian opera of 1820, Maometto, for the Parisian stage under the title of Le Siège de Corinthe. As Rossini’s original work had already absorbed distinctive French characteristics such as heroic arias, and characterisation through orchestral colour, the newly composed music for the reworking makes for a powerful and compelling operatic tour de force. With its historical subject matter and tragic ending, Le Siège de Corinthe anticipates the advent of grand opera.
