COURTING TROUBLE . . . The Italian Girl in Algiers is a spicy brew in which many forces are at work – the battle of the sexes, the clash of cultures and the strict societal code of the times just for starters.

Rossini liked his women strong and feisty: here, the young and sassy Isabella is separated from her lover Lindoro after their ship is plundered by pirates. But Lindoro’s life is complicated enough already. His master in the Algerian court, the bey Mustafà is bored with his wife Elvira and fancies the idea of an Italian woman heading up his harem. And now the fun really begins.

New Zealand-born, London-based mezzo soprano Wendy Dawn Thompson is returning to sing Isabella and Colin McColl, the Auckland Theatre Company’s Artistic Director, is filling the director’s chair.

Sung in Italian with English Surtitles

Opera in two Acts by Gioacchino Rossini

With members of the Chapman Tripp Opera Chorus
Accompanied by the Auckland Philharmonia Orchestra
