Movie Reviews

Get Your Butcher to Cut Your "Tournedos" Extra Thick...
Giordano Bruno | Wherever I am, I am. | 07/06/2009
(5 out of 5 stars)

"... squander your childrens' college funds on black truffles and foie gras, select your best brunello vintage, and stop thinking so much about the mess the modern world has become. Rossini is the epicure's escape!

All four of these early comic operas by Gioacchino Rossini were directed by Michael Hampe in the jewel-box Rokokotheater of Schwetzingen, with the virtues of a well-rehearsed male ensemble company --Alessandro Corbelli, Alberto Rinaldi, David Kuebler, skillful actors as well as singers -- plus female stars such as Luciana Serra, Susan Patterson, and Monica Bacelli. Three of the four operas are topnotch Rossini, deserving to be staged more often: "La Cambiale di Matrimonio", "La Scala di Seta", and "L'occasione Fa il Ladro". The fourth, "Il Signor Bruschino", a one-act 'farsa' written specifically for the 'pop' stage in Venice, is a trifle in Rossini's oeuvre, a scoop of lime sorbet between the fish and meat courses, but entertaining enough for a single viewing. I've reviewed all four productions separately."
