A Musical Changeling: Rossini's 'Le Comte Ory'


THE HIT SINGLE: "With the favor of the obscure night"

In the delicate, act three trio "À la faveur cette nuit obscure," Ory (tenor Antonis Koroneos) thinks he's romancing Adele (soprano Silvia Vázquez), not realizing that Adele is hiding in the darkness, and the "woman" he's trying to seduce is actually his own page, Isolier (mezzo-soprano Monica Bacelli).
