Württemberg Philharmonic Orchestra · Antonino Fogliani: <em>Rossini: L’occasione fa il ladro</em>

Composed by the young Gioachino Rossini in 11 days, to comply with a contractual commitment, L’occasione fa il ladro (Opportunity Makes A Thief) is a comedy of multiple confusions. Count Alberto, travelling to be wed to a fiancée he has yet to meet, leaves an inn with the wrong suitcase; Don Parmenione adopts the Count’s identity, determined to take the bride for himself. This single-act burletta is a moral drama, and Rossini has crafted interactions both tender and hilariously bewildering.
