The Turk in Italy

The Turk in Italy

Description

The Turk in Italy skips and sparkles from the gruffest of bass notes to the impossibly high reaches of Stacey Alleaume coloratura. Andrea Molino leads a cracking team of comic talents, including Paolo Bordogna in his side-splitting performance as the Turk. Simon Phillips’ playful production wrings every last laugh from Rossini’s ridiculous romp. Gabriela Tylesova gelato-coloured costumes and clever, cartoonish sets are stars in their own right: a candied cherry on top of this rather outrageous ice-cream sundae.
