From the Rossini Festival in Pesaro comes the first staged performance since 1825 of Adelaide di Borgogna. Set in medieval times, the libretto relates the tale of a king's widow who is used as a pawn in diplomatic and amorous intrigues. Adelaide stars sought-after mezzo Daniela Barcellona as Ottone, and, in the role of Adelaide, young Australian soprano Jessica Pratt, who possesses a natural-born bel-canto voice. Director Pier' Alli has devised a modern, stylish look for his production, which interweaves medieval aspects with ironically used elements from the time of the opera's genesis.
