CARNEGIE HALL PRESENTS

Performance Sunday, December 7, 2014 | 2 PM

Teatro Regio Torino

Rossini's William Tell (opera in concert)

Stern Auditorium / Perelman Stage
There’s more to William Tell than just an overture. Based on a Schiller drama, Rossini’s rarely performed opera was his last work and his dramatic masterpiece. A grand opera in every sense, William Tell thrills with its passionate arias, superb ensembles, and sweeping orchestral splendor—including that famous overture.
