ROSSINI’S L’ITALALIANA IN ALGERI
(Sung in Italian with captions in English)
The Pop-up Opera Company is back with their brilliant new production; a scintillating Rossini opera set against a backdrop of glitz and grit at the Algiers Hotel in Las Vegas.
Lindoro, a hotel employee, is down on his luck and in debt to the Algiers’ corrupt and extravagant owner, Mustafa. Lindoro’s Italian-American girlfriend Isabella, arrives in Vegas (pretending to audition as a show-girl) to try and get Lindoro out of this mess. Mustafa, bored with his faded starlet wife Elvira, is enraptured by the headstrong Isabella: but will she be seduced by his power and money? The surreal and dangerous world of Las Vegas breathes new life into Rossini’s absurd exotic comedy, as love and fidelity compete against the city’s tantalising promise of endless wealth and sensory gratification.
Don’t miss this exceptional and enthralling operatic experience; it’s enjoyable, fun, beautifully sung and superbly acted by a truly talented cast – guaranteed to captivate both dedicated opera lovers and those uncertain about opera.
