ROSSINI : COUNT ORY

Cultural ,  Concert ,  Opera at Versailles
Solene Ballesta
  • During the Crusades, lords went to the Holy Land, leaving women without defense. This is why the sister of the lord of Formoutiers languishes in her chateau, lusted after by a depraved count and a page in love.
    All try to approach the beautiful recluse, Ory by dressing-up, Isolier by unveiling his soul: who will win?

    In 1828, Rossini was a star in Europe, a favorite both with the public and star singers. The buffa plot enabled him to save from oblivion the specially commissioned score of Il Viaggio a Reims by recycling it with great virtuosity. Berlioz and Liszt expressed their admiration for Le Comte Ory: such a combination of troubadour poetry, musical variety and truculent irony shook up conventions and established genres that magnified French comic genius.
