Gioachino Rossini: The Man, The Music, The Food! with Dr. Nic Reveles - Episode 2 : Rossini and the mezzo-soprano. Recorded live on 04-14-2021. One of the more interesting aspects of Rossini’s operas is that he often featured the contralto or mezzo-soprano in music of sparkling quality. We think of Rosina in Barber, of course, as well as Angelina in La Cenerentola and Isabella in L’Italiana in Algeri. In today’s session, Dr. Nic will survey some of the delightful arias from this vocal repertoire which include feats of acrobatic coloratura that has to be heard to be believed!
