World Premiere Recording!
"It can be truly said of Adelaide di Borgogna that, like a rose, it bloomed but a day - l'espace d'un matin." First performed in Rome on the 27th December 1817, it enjoyed very few revivals. In 2011 the Rossini Festival in Pesaro presented the second staged performance of Adelaide di Borgogna since 1825. The story of the opera was taken from a historical event that took place in the medieval period, marking the end of an independent Italian kingdom and leading to the birth of the German Holy Roman Empire through the efforts of Otto I of Saxony. Caught between political rivalry and the love of two men, Adelaide of Burgundy struggles to fight for her people and chooses Otto, the better ruler, for herself and her kingdom.

Adelaide stars sought-after mezzo Daniela Barcellona as Ottone, young Australian soprano Jessica Pratt, who possesses a natural-born bel canto voice, in the role of Adelaide, and Bogdan Mihai gives proof of his versatile coloratura-tenor. Director Pier' Alli devised a modern, stylish look for his production, which interweaves medieval aspects with ironically used elements from the time of the opera's genesis. His video installations create a beautifully abstract world for Rossini's colourful music.


In firm control throughout, Jurowski gets excellently disciplined playing from the Comunale di Bologna Orchestra, notably sumptuous as Rossini overtures go. --Roger Pines, International Record Review
