Synopsis

Album Description
Giaocchino Rossini (1792-1868) was just twenty years old when he wrote this little comedy (known in English as "The Opportunity Makes the Thief") ? but it was far from his first opera. In fact, it was his seventh. Written in just eleven days, the little farsa was received coolly on its first night on November 24, 1812, and gained scant notice during four subsequent performances. Mountings after that were infrequent and it was to become one of Rossini?s least-known comic operas. Recent revivals, like this live performance captured in 1973, have given it a new lease on life, full as it is of the breezy charm of its amiable composer.
