Gioachino Rossini’s "Il Turco In Italia"

Join us for a children’s performance of Rossini’s Il Turco in Italia (part of the Rossini 150 celebrations). We will be guided through the story by Dario Ciotoli who joins us from Rome. The opera will be accompanied by the piano and sung by young artists from the UK and Italy, directed by Fiona Williams and led by Neapolitan conductor Andrea Tarantino. This is the introduction to the larger "Il Turco in Italia" project that will be taking place in the UK in Feb/March 2019 as part of an international co-production with the Associazione Musicale Tito Gobbi in Rome.

All participating children will also receive learning packs with more information about opera, Rossini and Il Turco in Italia, with fun activities to enjoy at home. La Magia Dell’Opera© Bimbi edition of the opera will last for approx. 1hr.
