Recorded live at the Rossini Opera Festival, Pesaro, August 2011

This is the premiere of the opera on DVD & Blu-ray

The second release on Opus Arte from the acclaimed Pesaro Rossini Festival; a highly contrasting production following the release of La Scala di Seta

Alex Esposito, who was recently acclaimed as Papageno in the La Scala production of Magic Flute, stars as Pharaoh.

This thought-provoking, modern-day interpretation of Rossini’s “Mosè in Egitto” sets the scene for superior music-making at the prestigious Rossini Festival in Pesaro. For conductor Roberto Abbado, the transposition of the action to the present day releases the energy of Rossini’s music. At his disposal is a cast of top-quality vocalists such as the “refined bel canto artist” (Bresciaoggi) Sonia Ganassi as Elcia, and the “outstanding” Dmitry Korchak as the Pharaoh’s son, two lovers fatefully drawn into the political turmoil and catastrophes of their time. Also among the protagonists are the “thoroughly brilliant” (DeutschlandRadio Kultur) baritone Alex Esposito as Faraone and, in his Rossini Festival debut, young, full-bodied bass Riccardo Zanellato as Moses. Conductor Roberto Abbado “inspired his musicians to deliver a spectacular performance” (Salzburger Nachrichten).

What the press said:

‘‘Vocally and physically, Dmitry Korchak is almost perfect as Osiride. His outstanding technique is forever at the service of an even more remarkable musicianship.’’ Seen and Heard International

‘‘ROF had found another outstanding singer in Alex Esposito as Pharaoh. His first act aria – Cade dal ciglio il velo – brought a thunderous, prolonged and deserved ovation. Rossini expression at its best.’’ The Guardian
