To celebrate the 200th anniversary of the premiere of the Rossini rarity, the Rossini Opera Festival in Pesaro staged Ricciardo e Zoraide with an all-star cast. Juan Diego Flórez makes his debut as the crusader Ricciardo, giving a "masterclass in bel canto" (Bachtrack), his high notes are "... still thrilling with their laser-like precision" (Financial Times). The South African soprano Pretty Yende - "radiant and richly expressive" (Financial Times) as Zoraide - proves that she is "a virtuosa in Rossini singing" (Neue Musikzeitung). On the 150th anniversary of the composer's death and 200 years after its premiere, Ricciardo e Zoraide rings out with an artistic quality that is second to none, thanks to the skills of an "absolute Champions League ensemble" (Online Merker). Due to the "attentive conducting of Giacomo Sagrapanti, practically nothing stands in the way of enjoying the beauty of this rarely performed score to the fullest" (Online Merker). The result is an incredible orchestral performance.
