Adelaide di Borgogna (Rossini Opera Festival)

From the Rossini Festival in Pesaro comes the first staged performance
since 1825 of "Adelaide di Borgogna". Set in medieval times, the libretto
relates the tale of a king's widow who is used as a pawn in diplomatic and
amorous intrigues. "Adelaide" stars sought-after mezzo Daniela Barcellona
as Ottone, and, in the role of Adelaide, young Australian soprano Jessica
Pratt, who possesses a natural-born bel-canto voice. Director Pier' Alli ha
devised a modern, stylish look for his production, which interweaves
medieval aspects with ironically used elements from the time of the opera's
