William Tell – more than just an overture.
The last opera he ever wrote and considered Rossini’s magnum opus, William Tell tells the dramatic story of the Swiss legend. You’ve probably heard the overture while watching reruns of The Lone Ranger, and know the part where he shoots an apple off of his son’s head, but do you remember how he overthrew the tyrannical leader of Austria?
Experience the epic tale live, with baritone Sean Anderson at the helm of the drama and Maestro Anthony Barrese back in front of the orchestra. Called a piece “rendered with unquestionable superiority…” by Hector Berlioz, William Tell is not to be missed.
