    L’Italiana in Algeri

    Gioachino Rossini 

    This adventure in the exotic East is an entertainment served up with humour and flair by the music of the young Rossini and the virtuoso conducting of Julien Chauvin.

    Le Concert de La Loge 

    Since the late seventeenth century, theatre and music alike had exhibited a pronounced taste for the East and its perceived exoticism. Molière’s Bourgeois was promoted to the rank of Grand Mamamouchi and Mozart slipped into a seraglio straight out of The Arabian Nights. For his part, the young Rossini painted a picture of the imagined charms of the East with his Italian in Algeri. This is one of his most exquisite successes; the virtuosity of the writing for both voices and orchestra is a dazzling feast for the senses. Julien Chauvin and his ensemble Le Concert de la Loge, who gave us a sparkling Abduction from the Seraglio last season, will bring all their energy to bear on it.
