Teatro Nuovo presents a semi-staged performance of Tancredi, Rossini’s first ‘hit,’ which contains some of the freshest, most appealing, and most touching music he ever composed.

Tancredi will be headlined by mezzo-soprano Tamara Mumford as Tancredi (featured in The Metropolitan Opera’s production of Saariaho’s L’amour de loin), soprano Amanda Woodbury as Armenaide, and Santiago Ballerini as Argirio (who had a universally-praised breakout performance last summer in Il pirata at Caramoor).
