Rossini's final opera helped to lay the foundations of the genre of French grand opéra that dominated European stages throughout the mid-19th century. The opera's theme is liberty, as exemplified in the struggle against Austrian occupation led by the Swiss archer and patriot Guillaume Tell: in the opera's most famous scene, Tell shoots an apple from his son's head, a feat that inspires his countrymen to revolt.

Rossini's score, here performed in its original French, is one of his most outstanding and packed with glorious arias, choruses and ensembles. The exciting young Italian director Damiano Michieletto makes his Royal Opera House debut with a spectacular and thought-provoking production.
