Teatro Nuovo: Tancredi Rifatto
In Rossini’s time, when an opera was re-mounted in a new city, the composer would write some new music for it. Over time, Rossini wrote alternate pieces for practically half the score. Tancredi rifatto (Tancredi re-made) is a different score, with some of Rossini’s best music, most of it unknown even to Rossini fans.
This event is part of Teatro Nuovo’s “The Dawn of Romantic Opera” Bel Canto Festival at Purchase College. This exciting new ensemble will present 19th-century opera with period instruments, in a unique style of semi-staging that brings each opera to full dramatic life in concert format.
