William Tell

Gioachino Rossini / Teatro Regio Torino

A passionate tale of forbidden love, and a story of a bitter struggle against tyranny: William Tell is the summation of Rossini's operatic expertise in a powerful work of great energy, drama and beauty.

From its bracing overture, the opera tells of the eponymous medieval Swiss patriot and his fight against Austrian oppression in music of great passion and lyricism. Its most famous scene, in which the renowned archer is forced to shoot an apple off his son's head, is just one of the opera's many colourful highlights.

The dynamic Italian conductor Gianandrea Noseda, respected worldwide for his opera interpretations and Music Director of the Teatro Regio in Turin, directs the chorus and orchestra and a cast of exceptional international soloists.
