Salzburger Festspiele 2018: L'Italiana in Algeri
© SF Marco Borrelli
What happens when a powerful man makes moves on a strong, independent woman who has no intention of accepting his advances? And how are things further complicated if he is Middle Eastern and she is Western and their cultures fundamentally clash? Find the answers in Moshe Leiser’s & Patrice Caurier’s colourful production of "L’Italiana in Algeri" with Cecilia Bartoli in the title role of the spirited Isabella."The role of Isabella is sung to perfection by Cecilia Bartoli – a clever, independent woman with an adventurous streak" (The New York Times).
