Rossini L’Inganno Felice
Rossini’s one act opera was an instant success after its premiere in 1812, creating a worldwide sensation thanks to the beauty of its music from overture to finale. The work was so popular that it was the third most often performed of Rossini’s operas during the composer’s lifetime.
