From the prestigious Rossini Festival in Pesaro comes a thought-provoking interpretation of Rossini's azione tragico-sacra Mose in Egitto. Topping the cast of high-caliber vocalists are Sonia Ganassi and Dmitry Korchak as two lovers drawn into the political turmoil of their time. Director Graham Vick's interpretation centers on a condemnation of all religious fundamentalism. Designed by Stuart Nunn, the set evokes a bombed-out edifice and provides a chilling setting for Rossini's haunting melodies. With the gifted Roberto Abbado on the podium, "the music is free to carry its timeless message" (La Stampa).
