Description
Tenor Yijie Shi takes the title role of the Count, mezzo Laura Polverelli plays his clever page Isolier, and soprano María José Moreno is love object Countess Adèle in this 2009 version of Rossini's gender-bending erotic farce, recorded live from the Rossini Opera Festival. The bonus feature is The Making of "Le Comte Ory" in Pesaro.

"The very young-looking Chinese tenor, Yijie Shi … has the requisite Rossini voice—secure high notes and plenty of agility. María José Moreno … and Laura Polverelli … have all aspects of their roles under control. The Orchestra of the Teatro Comunale of Bologna and the Prague Chamber Choir contribute excellent work, under the crisp conducting of Paolo Carignani."—American Record Guide

"The basic joke of Le Comte Ory is that the count and his fellow cavaliers dress as nuns to gain entry into the castle of his beloved-of-the-moment; the opera is pure comedy, with sex in every direction and a Rosenkavalier-like mezzo who plays a man who at one point must pretend to be a woman. That's act II; in act I the count masquerades as a learned holy man, seducing most of the village maids…. Both acts … contain some glorious Rossini ensembles."—Fanfare

"It is indeed arguable that it is the best of his comic operas, with a musical and dramatic sophistication that makes a good performance a very special pleasure."—Musicweb International
