La scala di seta by Rossini

Love intrigues take place up and down a silk staircase. Rossini’s farce is performed here by the young Academy singers conducted by Christophe Rouset and staged by Damiano Michieletto with the skillful use of mirrors in a production that has already been seen at the Rossini Opera Festival.
