Details

In his last and 40th music theatre piece, Gioachino Rossini, the greatest composer of his day, gave the world another operatic hit. Guillaume Tell, based on a play by Schiller, uses the imposing and extravagant resources of French Grand opéra to retell the legend of the Swiss liberation hero. For almost 20 years the masterpiece, which director David Pountney enriched with symbolic imagery, was absent from the Vienna State Opera programme, and now it returns with a formidable cast!
