Le Comte Ory - Rossini (early 19C comedy opera, about romantic, French nobleman, 2 LPs - ALP 1473/74)

£9.99

Product description

(featuring the Glyndebourne Festival Orchestra & Chorus, conducted by Vittorio Gui. Some of the leading stars of this operatic staging, include : Tenor Juan Oncina, as Le Comte Ory ; Soprano Sari Barabas, as La Comtesse Adele ; Soprano Jeannette Sinclair, as Alice, a young peasant girl ; Bass Michel Roux, as Raimbaud, a friend of Ory's ; Contralto Monica Sinclair, as Ragonde, a companion to Adele ; ... and many others)

Gioachino Rossini's (1792-1868) two-act opera, "Le Comte Ory", has a synopsis set at the time of the Crusades, whereby most of the French noblemen have left for Palestine ... except for a few, including the romantically-minded Count Ory. He has designs on the beautiful Countess Adele, whose brother, Count de Formoutiers, is away fighting.

The course of the two acts, follows the somewhat-comical attempts by Ory, to court Adele, amidst the backdrop, of the toing-and-froing of a Mother Superior and her nuns, and the startling news, that the crusaders are soon to be back!
