Royal Opera House Live: Guillaume Tell
The final opera of Rossini, Guillaume Tell, laid the foundations for the French Grande Opera, the style that essentially dominated the operatic European stages of the mid-19th century. With the theme of liberty, the score is among the most incredible and awe-inspiring the composer ever created, and as directed by the young Damiano Michieletto, is as fascinating as its original performance.
