    The Royal Opera House’s production of Rossini’s Guillaume Tell may have been eagerly expected by opera aficionados and lovers of great music everywhere, but instead of a beautiful production of a rarely heard opera by one of the genre’s greatest masters, what we got was unfortunately a rather indigestible and vulgar turkey stuffed with more operatic kitsch than you can shake a stick at/5(9).   Opera review: Guillaume Tell The only relief from the monotone is the crimson cloak of a phantom medieval archer who wanders through the hall stabbing at the tables with arrows, as if 3/5.

      Guillaume Tell, Royal Opera You know you’re in for the clichés of bad Regietheater when, against the storm music of the Overture, the lights go up on a clinical array of tables and chairs, the last to be spotlit the one on which young Jemmy Tell is playing soldiers and reading a comic book about the Swiss mythic hero. There’s a messy 3/5. William Tell (German: Wilhelm Tell; French: Guillaume Tell; Italian: Guglielmo Tell) is a folk hero from the story William Tell is a man who refused to bow down to pole set up by an army who had taken over the place he lived. He was arrested and forced to shoot an apple off his son's head with a crossbow, if he did not both he and his son would be killed.

    Rossini’s last opera, Guillaume Tell, can be considered a precursor to Meyerbeer’s approach to grand opera; Antonio Pappano’s commitment and enthusiasm also demonstrate that it far outshines most of its successors (though not Les Troyens). The score is that prepared by Elizabeth C. Bartlett under the aegis of the Rossini Foundation in. The opera for which he is best known today is the Il Barbiere di Siviglia (The Barber of Seville). Many of the overtures to his operas are played at orchestral concerts. The most popular is the overture to his opera Guillaume Tell (William Tell) with its feature in the British TV show The Adventures of William Tell.

Overture to ‘William Tell’ In Rossini settled in Paris and five years later produced his last opera, Guillaume Tell. The Overture is more ambitious than those written for earlier operas.

It is in effect a tone poem in four contrasting sections.Tell is a choral opera every bit as much as Boris Godunov; under the direction of Renato Balsadonna, the Covent Garden chorus’s work is full-throated but precise. The forces onstage and in the pit diligently render Guillaume Tell’s special nature.

For the most part, Michieletto does, too. —Fred Cohn.
