This is a rare opportunity to hear Rossini's Moses opera in the finely crafted original Italian version. It tells the story of the love of a young Jewish girl for the son of the Egyptian Pharaoh at the time of the enslavement of the Israelite minority in Egypt. Among its highlights are the superbly atmospheric opening Scene of the Shadows, an unforgettable portrait of an entire people plunged into the deepest misery, and the closing scene whose celebrated Prayer prefaces the parting of the waves, as Moses leads the Israelites to freedom and their own promised land. Concert performance in Italian with English surtitles. 5.45pm: Pre-concert talk by Richard Osborne (for ticket holders only)
