Opera in Cinema: L'Italiana in Algeri from the Teatro Communale di Bolgona

Giacomo Rossini wrote L'Italiana in Algeri in only 18 days when he was 21 years old - and now, almost 200 years later, audiences still thrill at both the manic energy and elegant melodies that make it a masterpiece. This light-hearted production from the Teatro Comunale di Bologona stars Anna Maria Sarra as the broken-hearted Elvira, Michele Pertusi as the lecherous Mustafà, Edgardo Rocha as the devoted Lindoro, and Marianna Pizzolato as the smart and resourceful Italian girl of the title.
