Gioachino Rossini - Bianca E Falliero DVD Features
This first DVD in the history of the ROF was recorded live in high definition in 2005. With this world-first DVD recording, Dynamic launches its partnership with the Rossini Opera Festival, which is to add a series of prestigious, new publications in 2006, all in high definition. Composed for La Scala in Milan in 1819, Bianca e Galliero is an opera of extraordinary dramatic originality, rich in highly spectacular stage solutions, and a fundamental work for our understanding of the full significance of the authentic revolution that the composer from Pasaro brought about in opera; a revolution that was destined to have a decisive influence on the development of Italian opera in the nineteenth century.
The singing cast features Maria Bayo, Daniela Barcellona, Francesco Meli and Carlo Lepore, conducted by Renato Palumbo and directed by Jean-Louis Marinoty.
