Armonia Atenea - Friends of Music Orchestra and George Petrou return to the Athens Festival with one of the most beloved operas of all time: the masterwork L’Italiana in Algeri by Gioachino Rossini, the great master of opera and composer of the legendary The Barber of Seville. The talented and versatile conductor George Petrou has received widespread acclaim by critics worldwide for his productions of Rossini and has been praised by Diapason magazine for being a “Rossini performer of unparalleled precision and musicality.” Petrou is joined by award-winning British director Laurence Dale and an exquisite international cast, headlined by the talented Italian mezzo-soprano Laura Verrecchia, distinguished baritone Simone Alberghini and the beloved Harris Andrianos.

L’Italiana in Algeri has been aptly described by Stendhal as a “total organised madness.” After years of being married to Elvira, the now bored Mustafà, the Bey of Algiers, dreams of getting a new lover. A beautiful Italian girl who shipwrecks and washes up on the shores of Algiers becomes his new object of desire. Love triangles, dark secrets, wonderful arias and witty music ensembles jointly comprise one of the most surreal operas ever composed.
