Dec 25: Looking to the future

Often the last window on an advent calendar is quite special. Here we offer you “orchestra” seats for one of the most moving Rossini performances that New York has experienced in recent times. It serves as a reminder that often the best Rossini performances are those that try to get as close to the composer as possible. Big stars, sets, costumes, nor concepts are not needed for works like these.

Thank you to the team at Teatro Nuovo ( in particular Jakob Lehmann )whose commitment to Bel Canto in general and Rossini in particular is a promising light along the path to the next Rossini revival.
