Rossini: Tancredi. November 11

Posted by Lane Whitesell on 10/27/2017

Op SW Tancredi

Lindsay Ohse (Amenaide), and Heather Johnson (Tancredi)

Rossini's simplest melody ever was Di Tanti Palpiti, sung by Tancredi in the first act of this heroic opera of 1813.  The score was lost until 1976, and Philip Gossett edited the first published version made from the autograph score of 1813.  Marilyn Horne sang the tragic ending in Houston in 1977, and the opera remains in the list of occasionally-performed Rossini tragedies, depending totally on the availability of a singer for Tancredi.  Opera Southwest performed this in October 2016, and the recording was made available for us through the WFMT Opera Network.
