Quote from: Florestan on September 11, 2023, 04:33:53 AMAn Englishman, a Frenchman, a German, a Spaniard and an Italian (individualized as such by talk, accent and pronunciation) shipwreck on a beautiful island. Upon learning it's the island of the sorceress Alcina, they collectively vow not to let themselves succumb to her charms, but no sooner do they see her than the vows are forgotten (though constantly invoked by each and every one of them as a reminder to the others: Amici, il giuramento!) and they take turns in declaring their love. And this is just the beginning.One can only dream about what Rossini or Offenbach would have made of such a libretto so we have to make do with Gazzaniga.

Quote from: Florestan on September 20, 2023, 01:59:26 AMIf there are no audible stage noises and the voices don't move around then it's probably a concert version.
