Last of the Incontri talks

20 August 2017

On Monday 21st August at 11.00 a.m. the last in our series of Incontri – talks – will be held in the Sala della Repubblica of the Teatro Rossini, organized on behalf of the Rossini Opera Festival by the Fondazione Rossini.  The lecture will be based on the fascination exerted by Ottoman culture on the European musical theatre, and will be given by Larry Wolff, teacher of history at the New York University.  The title given to the talk, The Singing Turk, is the same as that of the book that Wolff has written on this subject.  One of the operas dealt with will, obviously, be Le siège de Corinthe, one of the operas staged at the ROF 2017.
