2006 Royal Opera House production featuring Anna Caterina Antonacci, Jonas Kaufmann, and Ildebrando D'Arcangelo. Love, obsession, bullfights, cigarette girls, and smugglers.

L'italiana in Algeri

2013 Rossini Opera Festival production featuring Mario Cassi, Alex Esposito, and Mariangela Sicilia. Rossini’s sparkling story of the intrepid Isabella and the men who love her turns into a swinging sixties, James Bond-style adventure in this madcap, gag-filled, and vocally exquisite production.
