The premiere of this unknown opera by Rossini was one of the great events of the musical season.

“To reconcile with the opera, head for Le Châtelet! »Wrote Liberation.
“The divine surprise came from the stunning, refreshing, exciting and quite bluffing staging of the Corsetti-Sorin duo. »Exclaimed Le Monde.
This moment was captured by the cameras of Philippe Béziat for a breathtaking DVD… The bonuses allow us to discover the universe of Pierrick Sorin thanks to a film on his work and an interview with Jean-Christophe Spinosi who explains his choices and enlightens us on interpretation on period instruments.

The action takes place on the island of Alcina, an enchanted place where the sorceress has established her power by stealing the ashes of Merlin. These, preciously deposited in an urn, are locked in the temple of Hecate Infernal, under the care of the invulnerable Aronte. Alcina welcomed the beautiful Angelica, daughter of the King of Cathay, to her castle. In love with Medoro but pursued with her diligence by the paladin Orlando, Angelica fled the latter's ardor and lost track of her beloved lover. As the drama begins, Orlando, instructed by his mentor Malagigi to reclaim Merlin's ashes in order to destroy Alcina's power, arrives on the enchanted island. Astolfo, Orlando's faithful companion, is already there, a victim of the magician's perverse love. Ruggiero and his mistress Bradamante, other faithful of the paladin, are about to set foot there.

On the occasion of the 250th anniversary of Handel's death, the Vienna Opera, renowned for its opera productions that are both innovative and out of tradition, undertook a unique and extraordinary project: the staging of one of Handel's most popular oratorios. For this occasion, the opera called on the director Claus Guth.

The conductor Jean-Christophe Spinosi triumphs "with his fabulous orchestra (Ensemble Matheus) and the subtle choir of Arnold Schoenberg" (Suddeutsche Zeitung). Winner of the Diapason d'Or and the BBC Music Magazine Award, the Matheus Ensemble is internationally renowned for its interpretation of baroque music on ancient instruments. They are surrounded by the “best Handelian vocal set” (Frankfurter Rundschau) thanks to the talent of Cornelia Horak, Susan Gritton, Richard Croft and Bejun Mehta.

Composed by Rossini at the age of twenty-one, in three weeks, L'Italienne à Alger immediately conquered the public and remains today one of the flagships of Neapolitan opera bouffe. In this production filmed at the Salzburg Festival, the directors Patrice Caurier and Moshe Leiser have a blast in an iconoclastic transposition that delights the public: at a time when Algeria begins its transformation, this plunge into a a completely crazy universe is like comics, parody, operetta and sometimes a lot of fun. But all this would not hold without the unleashed troupe led by an irresistible Cecilia Bartoli and an almost surrealist Ildar Abdrazakov, under the amphetamine baton of Jean-Christophe Spinosi. This is what has always been Rossini's concern, pleasure!
