Filled with beautiful, original music, Rossini's rarely performed Sigismondo was resurrected at the 2010 Rossini Opera Festival in Pesaro. The press called the production a "perfect symbiosis of music and stage work" (Quotidiano Nazionale). Director Damiano Michieletto sets the first act in a realistic "insane asylum" of past times; the second takes place in an elegant palace. Mezzo Daniela Barcellona portrays the mad King Sigismondo with fierce intensity and flowing coloraturas; also outstanding are Olga Peretyatko, Antonino Siragusa and Andrea Concetti. Leading the orchestra with supreme musicality is Michele Mariotti, principal conductor of the Teatro Comunale di Bologna and acclaimed maestro at La Scala, the Met and other leading houses.
