Friday Night at the Opera - 11/11/11 - Rossini: Il Turco in Italia


Il turco in Italia (The Turk in Italy) is an opera in two acts by Gioachino Rossini. The libretto was written by Felice Romani. It was a re-working of a libretto by Caterino Mazzolà set as an opera (with the same title) by the German composer Franz Seydelmann in 1788.

An opera buffa, it was influenced by Mozart's Così fan tutte, which was performed at the same theatre shortly before Rossini's work. The opera was first performed in La Scala, Milan on August 14, 1814. This remastered 1955 recording stars Maria Callas and Nicolai Gedda. Gianandrea Gavazzeni conducts the La Scala Opera.
