The Rossini Opera Festival has a reputation for producing Rossini’s repertoire faultlessly. In La Cambiale di Matrimonio a beautiful young woman in love with a penniless young man fights back against her father’s scheme to marry her to a wealthy foreign business associate. Directed by Laurence Dale, conducted by Alessandro Bonato, the production will be sparkling with wit and talent. This is a good opera to begin your relationship with the genre as well as to indulge in the quick lightness of Rossini’s music. (Nov 24 & 26. 7pm & 4pm)
The month draws to a close with the exciting pianist Nikolai Kuznetsov and the Royal Oman Symphony Orchestra led by Alessandro Cadario in a collaboration with the world-famous concert hall ‘Salle Gaveau’ of Paris. Don’t miss a dazzling programme of Beethoven and Rachmaninoff. (Nov 28, 7pm. ROHMA)
