Opera Rara Tarver/Barden/Sco 3 CD

Elena: Carmen Giannattasio; Giacomo V, disguised as Uberto: Kenneth Tarver; Malcolm Groeme: Patricia Bardon; Rodrigo di Dhu: Gregory Kunde; Douglas d'Angus: Robert Gleadow; Albina: Francesca Sassu; Serano Bertram: Mark Wilde; Edinburgh Festival Chorus; Scottish Chamber Orchestra; Maurizio Benini, conductor


The seventh of nine operas which Rossini wrote for the Royal Theatres of Naples, La donna del lago was composed for Isabella Colbran, the Spanish soprano who, in 1822, became his wife; for Giovanni David and Andrea Nozzari, two tenors who, since they were stable members of the San Carlo company throughout these years, became associated for all time with his operas; and for Rosmunda Pisaroni, one of the great mezzo-sopranos of the age who specialised in male travestì roles. Created by four singers of such extraordinary accomplishment, it is little wonder that La donna del lago proved one of the most successful of all Rossini’s serious operas.

Recorded at the 2006 Edinburgh International Festival, with the Edinburgh Festival Chorus and Scottish Chamber Orchestra, the opera is conducted by Maurizio Benini and is being released to coincide with the stunning young soprano Carmen Giannattasio's June performances in the title role at this year's Garsington festival.
