Ermione is an opera of string colours, dominated by violent, shifting feelings, with passages of remarkable dramatic intensity and vivid pathos, rendered with masterly skill by the performers in this edition from the Rossini Opera Festival. The subject was taken from Jean-Baptiste Racine's tragedy Andromaque(1667) and the libretto was written by prolific librettist Andrea Leone Tottola. It premiered at the San Carlo Theatre in Naples on 27th March 1819 but was not a success for it was withdrawn after only seven performances until it was revived in concert form in Sienna on 22nd August 1987.
