Ravaged by love and letter

This medieval story of chivalry and tragic love is transported to the elegant atmosphere of post-World War I Europe in our production of Tancredi. The beautiful music of a young Rossini provides the soundtrack for the love between the exiled solider Tancredi and the beautiful Amenaide, daughter of the powerful Argirio. When Amenaide is sentenced to death for a treason she did not commit, a disguised Tancredi fights to defend both his love and home. Don't miss one of Rossini's most lyrical works in the hands of Music Director Corrado Rovaris, who leads “with supple moments of personal expressiveness” (The Philadelphia Inquirer).
