Editorial Review:

Product Description:
La pietra del paragone (The Touchstone), a story of three rival women and their pursuit of marriage to Count Asdrubale, is unique in the sense that no other opera of Rossini’s has been so highly praised in the literature on the subject and yet so seldom performed. The better known Il barbiere di Siviglia brought a series of stage successes without comparison, and so shaped the fate of La pietra. That it could not be counted among the first rank of Rossini operas meant that for nearly two centuries it had no place, not even a modest one, on the stage. It does, however, thorougly deserve its reputation and marks a unique phase of Rossini’s development as a master of opera buffa. His genius for melody and sparkling, witty orchestration are already apparent in this relatively early work. Leading this production is the conductor Alessandro de Marchi, who directs a lively and stylish performance. De Marchi has received high praise for his Rossini conducting across Europe. The leading role is Count Asdrubale is taken by Raffaele Costantini, and his beloved Clarice is sung by Agata Bienkowska. The other roles, which are comic rather than romantic, are taken by expert singing actors of a consistently high standard. The orchestra and chorus are from the Czech Republic, and the famed Czech virtuosity for string playing is fully in evidence.
