Product Description

Rossini's semi-serious opera Torvaldo e Dorliska belongs, like Beethoven's Fidelio, to the genre of 'rescue' opera. The hero and heroine of the title both succumb to the power of the villainous Duke, who has designs on the newly married Dorliska. Both are

5.0 out of 5 stars Not that bad at all! On the contrary, a real pleasure for Rossini lovers! Oct. 17 2010
By Carlos Augusto Laudari - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
One recent reviewer gave this recording a three star rate and that prevented me from purchasing this very good recording for some time. I finally found it in a local CD shop, bought it and was delighted with the piece. I am not goint to enter into the merit of the opera itself, but I would like to make notice of an important issue: buyers of Amazon are not always lucky enough to live in London, New York or Paris, where they can, once in a while, have the pleasure of being an audience member of a Torvaldo and Dorliska production, with Flores, di Donato and friends. Therefore, a recording as this one, for Rossini lovers, unless REALLY bad produced (which is not the case here) should always have a 5 star rating. Bravo Naxos, continue surprising us like that!

3.0 out of 5 stars Pedestrian Jan. 17 2008
By John Cragg - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Although this opera was composed at a time when Rossini was churning out some of his best work, Torvaldo e Dorliska is not an outstanding opera. Few numbers really can catch fire and it is indicative that the extent to which Rossini later used this opera as a quarry for use in other operas is comparatively limited, though some of the best pieces did later show up in other works. Unfortunately, the cast, orchestra, chorus and conducting in this recording are hardly more than adequate, so that it never really produces excitement or even many memorable moments. It is however, apparently the only cd of the opera that is available. (I haven't seen the DVD yet.)
